North America’s Most Reliable and Most Widely Utilized
Bypassing & Toll Payment Services

Our Mission

HELP Inc. is the non-profit public/private partnership that offers the PrePass suite of services. HELP’s mission is to create safer highways for everyone, to allow qualified carriers to save time, fuel and money and to be the recognized leader in developing solutions that promote safety and efficiency in freight movement by trucks.

What We Do

PrePass allows transponder-equipped commercial vehicles from qualified fleets to bypass designated weigh stations and ports of entry throughout the nation. Pre-cleared vehicles can continue at highway speeds without having to stop. PrePass not only saves fleets time, fuel and money, but it helps create greater efficiencies for shippers and supports improved safety for all highway users.

PrePass is the most reliable and most widely utilized weigh station bypass system in North America, with PrePass-equipped sites across every corridor north to south, east to west and hundreds of places in between.

Through PrePass, over a half million commercial vehicles from qualified fleets are electronically pre-screened for compliance with federal and state safety and credential requirements. This electronic pre-screening allows them to stay on the road and bypass PrePass-equipped inspection facilities at highway speeds. Whether it is saving drivers and companies time, fuel and money at weigh stations, or keeping trucks out of the cash lanes at toll plazas with PrePass Plus, we offer best-in-class solutions for every qualified fleet operation.

We Guarantee Data Privacy

Carriers’ PrePass data is confidential. From the beginning, PrePass data has been used only for the purpose of determining compliance with federal and state safety and credential requirements.  Learn More

The Results

PrePass keeps the wheels rolling for over a half million trucks from qualified fleets, offering safety and efficiency for commercial vehicle operators, states and the general public.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) estimates savings of $8.68 per bypass.1 Since we began compiling data in 1997, PrePass has saved carriers:

  • Nearly $5 billion in operational costs
  • More than a quarter billion gallons of fuel
  • Nearly 54 million hours of drive time

How it Works

Our in-cab transponder technology is the industry gold standard for speed, reliability, accuracy and overall ease of use. PrePass transponders are:

  • Instantaneous – providing drivers a “green light” within two seconds
  • Reliable – 99.9% accuracy is our standard
  • Easy to Use – green means “go” and red means “pull-in”

Most tolling agencies also rely on transponder technology, which gives PrePass Plus users the additional benefit of bypassing and paying tolls using just one transponder instead of having multiple devices mounted on the windshield.
