PHOENIX, Sept. 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Verra Mobility (NASDAQ: VRRM), a global leader in smart transportation, today announced a partnership with APRR, Europe's fourth-largest motorway operator, to provide its toll management services to French customers, making mobility easier and smarter for more consumers across Europe.
"On the heels of our acquisition of European Parking Collection last year, this agreement is a critical next step for us as we look to expand our international footprint," said David Roberts, president and CEO of Verra Mobility. "Initially, we will be focusing on providing toll services to our rental car company (RAC) partners throughout France. This partnership and evolution of our global systems is the first step to laying the foundation for expansion into other countries, making road travel in Europe more seamless and connected."
This partnership will enable Verra Mobility to design and develop products for fleets, focusing on rental cars initially, so drivers and renters can take advantage of the vast tolling network in France, saving both time and money by using electronic toll lanes without having to slow down and stop to pay each toll by credit card or cash.
"The Verra Mobility team has been tremendous to work with," said Guillaume Herent, deputy general director of APRR. "We are looking forward to a wonderful partnership as we work towards our mutual goal to improve the overall travel experience while keeping drivers safe, informed and comfortable."
APRR - a subsidiary of Eiffage - manages motorways and toll structures under concessions awarded by the French State. Under the terms of its concession agreements, the Group also invests heavily in its 2,300 km network, to improve travel conditions and satisfy customers' new mobility requirements.
