​Safety Patrol Sponsorship and Advertising

state farm safety patrol header

PennDOT previously partnered with Travelers Marketing to identify state-owned assets with potential for generating sponsorship revenue. The flagship initiative of this partnership was the State Farm Service Patrol, which offered motorists free assistance on the state's busy interstates and expressways; the program generated over $1.7 million in revenue and assisted more than 25,000 motorists.

The P3 agreement between PennDOT and Travelers Marketing has since expired (March 2019), and the P3 Office anticipates having an executed contract with the newly selected successful contractor in early 2020.
