About Verra Mobility
Verra Mobility (NASDAQ: VRRM) focuses on making life safer, easier, and more connected for their customers and the communities they serve. As a global leader in smart transportation, they connect people, technology, and data across the smart mobility ecosystem and their customized technology solutions solve complex transportation challenges. Their global presence in more than 15 countries and extensive partnerships with leading toll authorities, rental car fleet companies like Hertz, Enterprise, Sixt, and municipalities position them as a recognized leader in the smart mobility space.
Verra Mobility provides their Commercial Services customers including rental car companies, fleet management companies, and large fleet operators with technology to help them manage tolls, violations, and vehicle registrations, as well as outsource the collection of drivers’ parking fines. Their Government Solutions customers consist of municipalities, school districts, and other entities. They install, maintain, and manage leading technology that positively impacts driver behavior and enhances road safety, such as red light, speed, and bus lane cameras. A poignant example is CrossingGuard, a school bus stop arm solution that incorporates all of the services required to successfully reduce illegal school bus passing, from the installation and maintenance of security cameras to event processing, payment, and court support. It is violator-funded so there are no upfront costs. What’s more: it is proven to be highly effective in protecting children as they travel to and from school. As cities become smarter and mobility becomes more complex, connected, and automated, Verra Mobility makes life safer and easier on the road ahead.
Verra Mobility has a large US presence and their new international team in Amsterdam will launch successful services, beginning in France. They already laid the groundwork with fine collection and forms of registered companies using transponders for 400 European companies. In 2019, they focused on tolling for B2B and direct to consumers in Madrid. Now they are ready to really hit the road running in Europe.
