InComm expands transit business
InComm, a prepaid and payments technology company, continues to expand its tolling and transit payments business nationwide with the RiverLink Starter Kit for commuters crossing the Ohio River between Louisville, Ky., and Southern Indiana.
The kit, which contains a transponder and reload card, enables consumers to purchase a transponder and load funds onto their RiverLink accounts at InComm’s retail network.
The partnership with RiverLink was initiated by Kapsch TrafficCom, which is the toll systems provider for the three RiverLink bridges operated by the Louisville-Southern Indiana Ohio River Bridges. Kapsch has designed, installed and is operating the open-road toll collection system for these bridges, in addition to managing the back-office system and customer service center operations.
Now operating in six states InComm’s Tolling and Transit program provides transit authorities with prepaid cards for transit like the UTA in Salt Lake City or prepaid cards and or starter kits for electronic tolls like RiverLink in Kentucky and Indiana and Peach Pass in Georgia.
“The convenience our Tolling and Transit program brings commuters, and the value it brings retailers, makes it a viable payment solution across the entire country,” says Michael Herold, vice president of business development for InComm. “We have our sights set on making this technology available to anyone in the U.S. who drives on a toll road or takes public transportation, with our ultimate goal of connecting all of our roads and offering one universal product that will get you from one coast to the other.
