Quickly Passing Through the Stops

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 8:30 am

Whenever I have to travel on the long road, I would always bring enough change to fill up my cup holder for when I go over the toll bridge. Once I didn’t bring enough change, and I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to pass, but the operator was nice enough to let me through that one time. Now I don’t even bother with the change. I got a card at http://hgsyukle.com that can be used at the bridge. All I have to do is swipe the card and drive right through. I can add more funds to the card, even while I’m on the road.

Recently I forgot to add some money to the card, and all I had to do was use my phone to do it. Using my phone, I went to the load website and logged into my account. I did an automatic add using information that I already had on file, and I was ready to go. If this were 10 years ago before we had phones this advanced, people would be trying to call someone who was near a computer to add more funds to the card. Even the most advanced phones back then probably couldn’t have used the website in the same way that phones do now. Not to mention the phones would have been so slow.

I wonder if other countries have adopted a system as good as this one. I know some countries use a similar system for buses and trains, but I don’t think they’ve integrated it into toll bridges. Then again, I guess one must wonder how much people in other countries have the chance to use toll bridges. Some places use them to generate more revenue for the city. while others feel that they are a waste of time.
