The Burlington County Bridge Commission is the latest public agency to join OmniAir Consortium®. The Burlington County Bridge Commission is responsible for the operation and maintenance of several bridges in Burlington County, New Jersey, just across the Delaware River.
The Commission is one of 39 member agencies that make up the larger E-ZPass Interagency Group that operates within 17 states. E-ZPass is an electronic toll collection system used on most tolled roads, bridges, and tunnels in the Midwestern and Eastern United States, as far south as Florida and as far west as Illinois.
“The Commission has taken a leadership role on behalf of the E-ZPass Group within OmniAir to develop and launch OmniAir’s Multi-Protocol Tolling Device Certification Program said,” Stan Ozalis, Director of Information Technology and ETC for the Burlington County Bridge Commission. “This work goes hand in hand with our mission to provide Burlington County residents, commuters and visitors with safe, accessible and affordable bridges, roads and facilities.”
“We are excited to have Burlington County Bridge Commission as our newest member from the tolling community, said Jason Conley, Executive Director of OmniAir Consortium. “The Commission’s leadership role in OmniAir will help bring us one step closer to realizing the goal of national toll interoperability.”
OmniAir’s Tolling and Emerging Payment Technologies Working Group brings together the nation’s leading tolling experts from government and industry to develop and advance OmniAir’s testing & certification programs for tolling technologies. Multi-Protocol Tolling Device Certification involves three regional, single, standalone RFID protocols (6B, 6C & TDM).
Multi-protocol tags and readers, which incorporate three regional, single, standalone RFID protocols (6B, 6C & TDM), are becoming increasingly popular in the market. The development of a certification program for multi-protocol devices is top priority for OmniAir. This new certification program is expected to launch in mid-2020.
If your organization is interested in contributing to the development of this important new certifiction program for tolling, please contact Kate Oldham, Senior Director of Meetings & Membership.
