ACS, A Xerox Company (NYSE: XRX) is working on a program that would alter toll rates based on traffic levels to cut congestion on the new ‘ExpressLanes’ in Los Angeles.
According to the firm, “the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority will convert portions of Interstate 10 and Interstate 110 from “car pool” or high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes to ExpressLanes or high occupancy toll lanes, allowing people driving alone to travel in existing car pool lanes for a toll.”
Tolls for single passenger vehicles will depend on the average speed of traffic in the ExpressLanes.
“ACS’ expertise in applying intelligent transportation practices will allow drivers on I-10 and I-110 in Los Angeles County to make better use of the highway without having to stop and pay a toll, ” said David Amoriell, group president, Transportation Solutions. “Essentially this project will expand the capacity of the interstate without adding expensive new lanes.”
