In just over 90 days since PrePass announced that its customers could enroll in the NorPass and Oregon Green Light weigh station bypass programs for no additional charge, the company said hundreds of customers who represent more than 100,000 commercial vehicles have been enrolled.

The enrollment was made possible by agreements between Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT), Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) and HELP Inc., the provider of PrePass services.

PrePass-enrolled trucks are now bypassing weigh stations at 44 additional locations in seven states: Alaska, Connecticut, Idaho, New York, Oregon, South Dakota and Washington. NorPass is operated by WSDOT on behalf of the other NorPass states, and Oregon Green Light is run by the ODOT Motor Carrier Transportation Division.

Previously, fleets wishing to bypass weigh stations in Oregon, Washington and other NorPass jurisdictions purchased a transponder from WSDOT that also worked in the other jurisdictions. Now fleets need just one transponder in their trucks — a NorPass/Oregon Green Light Transponder purchased from WSDOT that can be enrolled in PrePass, or a PrePass transponder that can be enrolled in NorPass/Oregon Green Light.

PrePass customers who want to use their transponders at NorPass locations or in Oregon Green Light can contact PrePass customer service. As part of the registration process, carriers must submit a signed waiver of HELP’s data privacy policy to allow HELP the ability to share transponder data with NorPass and/or Green Light.
