Any trucking company can apply to enroll in the program and the State of New Jersey will authorize trucks to participate based on their credentials and compliance history. Enrollment in NJPassTM is available to trucking companies for an annual fee varying from $24 to $50 per truck, based on whether the company already has compatible transponders, the number of trucks the company is enrolling and length of time the company elects to be part of the program.
International Road Dynamics handles the enrollment process and fee collection for the NJPassTM program, through a contract with the State of New Jersey.
Enrollment requires a signed service agreement, payment of fees, submission of carrier information and vehicle information for the trucks enrolled. There are multiple options for enrollment including use of a NJPassTM transponder or use of a BESTPASS or NORPASS pre-clearance transponder.
Bypass rates can be as high as 90% and are determined by a carrier’s past performance at roadside inspections (CSA scores) and good weight compliance history. Typically a carrier that has a history of good inspections and a “Satisfactory” rating will qualify for a favorable bypass rate. These rates are determined by formulas approved by the State of New Jersey and are subject to review on a regular basis.
