Weigh station bypass comes to Ontario

Updated Feb 5, 2019

The Ministry of Transportation of Ontario, Canada Thursday announced inspection station bypass provided by Drivewyze will be available in the province in March. This is the first such service in Ontario.

Starting March 1, Drivewyze PreClear weigh station bypass will be available for 32 locations. The sites were determined based on strategic corridors and inspection volume, according to a statement from the ministry and Drivewyze. One of the most prevalent lanes will be Highway 401, which connects from Detroit to Toronto. There are two weigh stations that can be bypassed along the route between Windsor and Toronto – four total along the entire eastbound 401. Other notable corridors include Highways 402 and 403.

Adding Ontario, Drivewyze now has coverage at more than 700 fixed and mobile inspection sites in 42 states and two provinces. It has the largest footprint of any bypass service in North America.

Carriers and drivers can subscribe to Drivewyze PreClear bypass service in Ontario alone, or as part of a U.S./Ontario bundle. To qualify for bypasses in Ontario, trucks must possess Ontario license plates, or must be U.S. plated trucks registered to carriers that have CVOR certification permitting them to operate in Ontario.

The Drivewyze PreClear bypass application is available on a number of Drivewyze partner platforms, including Omnitracs, PeopleNet, Transflo, Rand McNally, Zonar, ORBCOMM, Platform Science, ISAAC, and Switchboard.

Drivewyze comes with a free Weigh Station Heads-Up service for real-time notifications at more than 1,200 weigh stations and inspection sites in North America.
