BTIG analyst Mark Palmer raised the firm's price target on Verra Mobility to $15 from $13 and keeps a Buy rating on the shares. Palmer said that while Verra's cashless tolling payment business in the U.S. continues to be "severely" challenged by depressed activity in the rental car space, he believes the stock is likely to build on its recent momentum as an effective vaccine for COVID-19 comes closer to reality. The analyst added that the potential for Verra's tolling revenues makes it the most compelling reopening story within his coverage universe.

Verra Mobility to deploy CrossingGuard with three New York counties » 09:1110/0610/06/20
Verra Mobility announced…
Verra Mobility announced that it has been awarded multi-year contracts with three New York counties to deploy CrossingGuard, an automated stop arm photo enforcement solution that enhances safety by reducing the number of vehicles that illegally pass a school bus as children enter and exit. The recently awarded contracts include Broome County, Oneida County, and Orange County. Combined, these counties account for a total of 44 school districts, approximately 135,500 students and thousands of school buses. The announcement comes as Verra Mobility continues its ongoing commitment to support school safety in the state. By the end of 2020, Verra Mobility is on track to have more than 1,000 school zone speed safety cameras installed in New York City, one of the largest safety camera programs in the country. The need for technology of this nature, including stop arm photo enforcement, is clear. In fact, the National Association of State Directors of Pupil Transportation Services estimates that throughout a 180-day school year, more than 17 million stop arm violations could be committed by reckless drivers in the United States alone.
