The Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group has expanded the availability of Rent A Toll passes, a prepaid toll service, to renters in the metro Denver area.

The service is available at three Dollar Rent A Car locations and one Thrifty Car Rental location in the Denver area, including Denver International Airport.

The service costs $8.95 per day and it covers all toll charges on 65 miles of toll roads in the metropolitan Denver area.

Using Rent A Toll's Pass 24 toll service, drivers are permitted to zip through the high-speed express lanes without stopping to physically pay the toll. Instead, the toll is collected through the use of a system that encompasses video technology that records vehicle license plates.

"Pass24 is proving to be a great time-saving option for our customers," said Scott Anderson, senior executive vice president of corporate operations for Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group, in a statement.

Adding Denver marks the second time this year that Dollar Thrifty has expanded the availability of Rent A Toll's Pass 24 service. After testing it for five month in Dallas last year, Dollar Thrifty began offering the Pass 24 service to renters in Houston in January.

"Consumer demand for our Pass24 product is high, and we are excited about the opportunity to expand into the Denver market with Dollar Thrifty," said Rick Welch, Rent A Toll's president and CEO.
