FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BURLINGAME, Calif.,Mar. 10, 2015 – Drivewyze has announced that Drivewyze PreClear bypass service has been added in the state of New York. 33 states now offer the mobile-based service, making it the nation’s largest weigh station bypass service with 478 sites.
Drivewyze PreClear users began receiving bypasses in January, at nine locations on U.S. Interstates 81 and 88 near Syracuse and Binghamton, and Interstate 87 near Albany and Saratoga Springs, with more locations to be added soon.
A map with all of the currently active weigh stations and inspection sites in New York and across the country is available on the Drivewyze web site: https://drivewyze.com/coverage-map/.
“We’re pleased that officials with the New York State Department of Transportation recognize Drivewyze technology as an effective way to prescreen safe commercial operators,” said Brian Heath, president of Drivewyze. “By offering truck and fleet operators the opportunity to earn bypasses through the strength of their safety records, New York state officials can reduce congestion in and around weigh stations, allowing freight to move more quickly.
“We’re also thrilled to become the nation’s largest weigh station bypass service, with the largest coverage area across the United States, offering bypasses at more locations than any other bypass service,” he added.
Drivewyze uses cellular technology and the internet to add transponder-like functionality to electronic logging devices, smartphones and tablets instead of dedicated short-range communication transponders and transponder readers, Heath said.
Drivewyze PreClear 3.0, the newest version of the weigh station application, comes with Weigh Station Heads-Up service for real-time notifications for more than 700 weigh stations and inspection sites nationwide. While the notification service is free, the bypass service is subscription-based and starts at $15.75 per vehicle per month with free trial offers and volume discounts available. The Drivewyze PreClear weigh station bypass application can be used on Android and iOS-based tablets or smartphones, and is integrated into PeopleNet Blu.2 and Tablet devices, the Zonar 2020 mobile communications tablet, and the Rand McNally TND 760 fleet management device.
