ORT

*UPDATED* Open Road Tolling, which is one or more lanes of free-flow tolls on a roadway, generally operated at the prevailing facility speed limit. ORT uses electronic toll collection and license plate image capture for collection of tolls, without an in-lane cash payment option. Future ORT lanes may also deploy other automated identification technologies “ORT” refers to the physical design of the toll point, whereas “AET (All Electronic Tolling)” refers to the methods of payment accepted at the toll point. In practice the terms are often used interchangeably.
