TCA Partnership with PayNearMe Continues to Increase Customer Convenience
Drivers of The Toll Roads have even more options to pay tolls, violations and/or replenish FasTrak® accounts. Drivers can now conduct transactions at participating Walgreens locations nationwide. Walgreens – one of America’s largest store chains – joins a list of popular and convenient retailers where The Toll Roads accept payments through their partnership with cash payment network provider PayNearMe. The list includes 7-Eleven, CVS Pharmacy, Family Dollar, Walmart and more.
Since January 2021, more than 305,000 payments have been made using PayNearMe. According to a recent case study, drivers from all 50 states and most Canadian provinces have used PayNearMe to make a Toll Roads payment at more than 5,000 locations.
PayNearMe transactions have increased by more than 500% since the implementation of QR (Quick Response) codes, which provide even more customer convenience, significantly reducing credit card transaction fees paid by TCA.
