New PrePass® Truck Bypassing Sites in CA, WI and WY

HELP Inc. is rolling along with new PrePass sites near Mt. Pass, CA, Superior, WI and Sundance, WY. These new sites now provide weigh station pre-clearance and bypass for PrePass-approved trucks. We also recently installed new weigh-in-motion (WIM) scales at two PrePass locations near Cheyenne, WY.

PrePass utilizes reliable transponder technology that ensures 99.9% accurate data transmission while keeping drivers focused on the road. PrePass is a service offered by HELP Inc., a non-profit public private partnership serving the trucking industry and government agencies by promoting safety and efficiency in commercial transportation.

California was the first state to deploy PrePass technology in 1993, with 35 sites open in the state today.  Since HELP began compiling data in 1997, carriers have received over 97 million safe bypasses in the state, with an estimated industry cost savings of driver time and fuel cost equaling $695,751,795. The new Mt. Pass location is situated on I-15 south of the Nevada state line.

Wisconsin first deployed PrePass in 2001 and has enabled 3.1 million safe bypasses. The new Wisconsin site is located at highways 2 and 63 approximately six miles east of Superior. Another new PrePass site in Sundance, Wyoming resides on I-90 westbound, approximately 17 miles west of the South Dakota state line. Wyoming deployed PrePass in 1997 and has enabled over 16 million bypasses at its seven sites.
