Actually the Oklahoma Pikepass system uses the same equipment as does
Texas, Pennsylvania, and other states. But instead of contracting out the
operation and billing to a private company, Oklahoma's Turnpike Authority
runs it in house. They are currently negotiating with other states to make
the Pikepass (TollTag) valid in other locations around the country.
