drivewyze weigh station bypassCanada’s Ministry of Transportation of Ontario (MTO) announced inspection station bypass, through Drivewyze, is coming to the province in an effort to improve productivity and safety in the region.

Drivewyze PreClear weigh station bypass will be available for subscription, starting March 1, at 32 inspection station locations. The sites were determined based on strategic corridors and inspection volume.

One of the most prevalent lanes will be Highway 401, which connects from Detroit on the U.S. side (Windsor in Canada) to Toronto. There are two weigh stations that can be bypassed along the route between Windsor and Toronto – four total along the entire 401 highway headed eastbound. Other notable corridors include Highways 402 and 403.

“We’re thrilled to begin operation in Ontario,” said Brian Heath, president and CEO of Drivewyze. “It’s a key province that conducts a huge amount of commerce and trade – trucks transport the goods across Canada, and into and out of the United States. We know our customers with routes in Canada will now save a great deal of time when travelling through Ontario and the rest of North America.”

With Ontario now coming on board, Drivewyze has coverage at more than 700 fixed and mobile inspection sites in 42 states and two provinces.

Carriers and drivers can subscribe to Drivewyze PreClear bypass service in Ontario alone, or as part of a U.S./Ontario bundle. Existing Drivewyze subscribers and new subscribers can obtain the service through Drivewyze’s broad ELD reseller network, or through Drivewyze directly.

To qualify for bypasses in Ontario, trucks must possess Ontario license plates, or must be U.S. plated trucks registered to carriers that have CVOR certification permitting them to operate in Ontario.
