FLORHAM PARK, N.J., Nov. 8, 2018 — Conduent Transportation, a business unit of digital interactions company Conduent Incorporated (NYSE: CNDT), will continue to help ease travel across Los Angeles County by modernizing the tolling system on ExpressLanes with the latest in automated technologies. The upgrades will save drivers time via reduced congestion, while also improving safety on both the I-10 and I-110 corridors.
The eight-year contract extends Conduent’s six-year relationship with the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro). The company’s new tolling platform will enable Metro to use enhanced analytics capabilities and build on the ExpressLanes project along the two busy interstates.
The upgrades will include the installation of overhead scanners and multi-protocol, automatic vehicle identification equipment that will correspond with transponders installed on commuters’ vehicles. These upgrades will help to increase accuracy and overall performance of the ExpressLanes.
