Rent A Toll Receives Patent
Rent A Toll, Ltd recently announced that it has been issued the first U.S. patent in regards to a toll fee system and method for providing tolling services to rental and corporate fleet vehicles.
The patent (U.S. Patent No. 7407097) relates to a toll fee tracking system comprising a toll authority, adapted to collect data associated with at least one toll fee tracking device (typically a transponder) and a toll rental entity (Rent A Toll) adapted to communicate with the toll authority and a third party entity (typically a rental car agency or cororate fleet company).
The toll rental entity further acts as an intermediary between the toll authority and the rental car or fleet company for the matching of transactional data from the toll authority and the rental car or fleet company.
