    It takes 15 minutes for the system to refresh but I'm pretty sure your company has to do it

    Everyone is, at the last Intermodal of Illinois Association meeting a representative from Trac was there to talk about how ipass changed the booths to rear plate facing cameras because of all the trucks that were missing plates.

    I honestly don't know if current rates will support this business with these tolls......Intermodal is fast approaching an inflection point, all the "FLEXIBILITY" of paper logs, no tolls and such is being squeezed out....but at these rates, I'm starting to have serious doubts of weather this is still a viable business model......

    Before I did the plate, my monthly toll bill was close to $1,000 per month......even though it's tax refundable.....it might just be too much of a cash flow killer....

    that's one of the worst parts of working intermodal. i dont think there's a way around it, whether you have flexbility or not... just one of the cons that i guess we have to live with it... it's outrageous tho.... tolls just keep getting higher and higher...
