New Jersey Department of Transportation recently launched NJPass, which allows pre-enrolled commercial truck fleets in New Jersey to bypass weigh stations.
The department partnered with International Road Dynamics, Inc. on the system that permits NJPass equipped vehicles to bypass the state’s three inbound weigh stations located at I-78, I-80, and I-295.
NJDT says NJPass will help save money on fuel and reduce drive times, while reducing back-ups at weigh stations and improving highway safety.
“This system will help to improve the operation of New Jersey’s weigh stations by focusing on higher risk carriers and provide more efficient use of our limited New Jersey State Police resources,” said Paul Truban, NJDOT’s manager of the Bureau of Freight Planning and Services. The State Police Transportation Safety Bureau runs the New Jersey weigh stations.
Any trucking company can apply to enroll in the program. Enrolling companies will pay an annual fee calculated by fleet numbers and the length of time the company elects to participate in the program.
