ClearRoad is reassessing the value of public space and building the funding infrastructure for the future of mobility. The ClearRoad IoT platform facilitates the monetization of roads by government agencies across North America through road usage pricing. It flexibly operates under any programmatic and regulatory designs, across a range of existing and planned vehicle usage identification technologies. The company has already established itself in this nascent space, with existing per-mile programs in Oregon and Washington State, and partnerships with established leaders in the tolling and telematics industries. If we’re going to get the congestion pricing we need to reduce traffic in our cities, government agencies will need help to automate toll road pricing for any section of road without the need for traditional proprietary hardware infrastructure.
