Highway Toll Administration is the largest provider of toll services for the rental car industry. Since we started in 2002, we have processed more than 300 million electronic toll collection transactions with data from both transponder-based and license-plate-based video tolling. Today, through our awesome technology and proprietary services, we handle the tolling interests of more than 3.7 million vehicles and offer the most comprehensive solutions in the industry, including:

Handling the entire service and administration around tolling for rental car companies and fleets of all kinds
Transponder-based solutions for rental car companies and fleets of all kinds
License plate-based video-tolling solutions
Complete comprehensive solutions for all manner of toll violations

The year was 2002...HTA's founder, David Centner, had a vision for introducing automated toll payment to the rental car industry. Rental car customers had long been burdened with stopping to pay cash for their tolls, collecting paper receipts for expense reimbursement, or simply running the toll and receiving a hefty violation. This was an era of mass inefficiency. Toll authorities had huge volumes of unpaid tolls, rental agencies had millions of dollars in toll liabilities, and rental customers were idling at toll plazas everywhere.

Fast forward to today...As the pioneer at what we do, HTA is the leading company in our category serving most of the rental car industry. Automated tolling in rental cars has become a customer expectation. We have grown quickly maintaining the highest levels of service while continuing to push the envelope on technology. As delivered through our killer proprietary technology platform "TollKeeper" within our Agile Scrum development environment, we offer the most comprehensive electronic toll collection solutions for fleets in the world.

HTA’s culture is fun, casual, and fast-paced. Our people are flat-out exceptional. Our offices are bright, collaborative and open. We are growing and expanding to new heights, yet we remain committed to our humble foundation.

Our major rental car partners include: Alamo, Avis, Budget, Enterprise, National, Payless and dozens of independents, as well as franchisees.

With three technology patents and one design patent, we provide customized turnkey electronic toll collection solutions for fleets and transportation agencies. Powered by our proprietary “TollKeeper” software, we are fully integrated with toll roads throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and Canada. Our transponder-based solutions combine specially designed housing units with standard toll-road-issued transponders. Our solutions are supported with full back-end administrative services, including billing, customer service and dispute resolution of toll violations.
