Your E-ZPass transponder might get you through the toll booth in a hurry, but what if it could help you breeze through the line at the gas station or restaurant drive-through in the same way?
A Massachusetts company is hoping to harness the more than 32 million transponders on the roads today to create a new payment system customers could use to buy goods and services without leaving their cars.
Verdeva Inc. on Tuesday announced a deal with the 16-state group that runs E-ZPass, giving the relatively unknown startup a year to develop a pilot program to use the transponders for purchases beyond the toll booths.
