Progress Report: Toll Operations Program Adopts Some Recommendations--Saved $1 Million, Report No. 01-41, September 2001
Full report in PDF format

The Department of Transportation and the Legislature have taken some actions consistent with recommendations made in our 1999 review of the Toll Operations Program.  The Legislature authorized the department to privatize more toll collection activities.  Privatization saved the department $1 million in Fiscal Year 2000-01.  In addition, electronic toll collection (SunPass) has been implemented statewide.  However, our recommendations regarding lease-purchase agreements with local expressway authorities have not been implemented.

Report No. 99-08 Justification Review of the Toll Operations Program, published in September 1999.
