Last Paragrapgh - which few ever read-
>>The proposed conversion, five years off, would cost about $319 million but would boost net toll revenue by $5 million in the first year and by about $21 million in the 10th year, in large part because the Pennsylvania Turnpike’s 700 toll collectors would be rendered obsolete, the report said.<<
So...$319 mil to convert, with maybe 30 mil savings over the 1st 10 years.... they’re not saving anything.
So what’s the real reason to do this??
Not sure what are all the negative thoughts on this - all over Dallas we have this system, you can even go into the airport using toll tag and not stop for toll booth. You don’t need the tag, on the roads, the NTTA takes a photo of cars license plate, sends a monthly bill. No big deal.
First off the 319 million is a lie, no way in the world tearing down toll booths and putting up blue tooth devices would cost that.
