September 12, 2008

Kapsch TrafficCom AG has secured an order for the first Eazy Pass electronic toll system in Dublin. The company has satisfied the particularly demanding criteria of Eazy Pass and is to supply 30,000 transponder units (or tags for short) to Ireland. Eazy Pass will be used on the new M50 toll route in Dublin. The system will also allow barrier-free driving throughout Ireland. Eazy Pass enables electronic payment at all Irish toll stations, without the need to stop.

The latest order for Kapsch TrafficCom comes from Ireland. The Kapsch TrafficCom subsidiary Kapsch TrafficCom Ltd. is to supply 30,000 transponder units to Dublin. These will be used in the first electronic toll system Eazy Pass on the new M50 toll route in Dublin. Eazy Pass is now also accepted on the N4/N6 Kilcock-Kinnegad, N8 Fermoy Bypass, Dublin Port Tunnel, East-Link and M1 Dundalk Western Bypass. Within the scope of this order, Kapsch will supply transponder units for passenger cars and tags for goods vehicles.

“We have worked with Kapsch TrafficCom since we pioneered electronic tolling in Ireland. Kapsch is our principle technology supplier and a real key partner. We are therefore very pleased that Kapsch TrafficCom has been able to meet our requirements in order to support us in what is a particularly important step towards the expansion of electronic tolling in Ireland,” explains Dermot MacEvilly, CEO of Eazy Pass.
