I don't think I've even heard of a metro area having two, non-interoperable transponders anywhere else.

Miami comes to mind - Rickenbacker Causeway does not take SunPass (which all the other toll roads in the area do), but they do have their own "C-Pass".

C-Pass is not accepted anymore; Sun Pass is.

EDIT : This just shows non-interoperability is not a sealed fate. It just takes some political will and a reasonable motive (whether engineeral or economical).

we need an senator or congressman to get hit with the insane rent a car toll fees to force change.

...and in Quebec, for sure, a politician having some political will and a reasonable motive at the same time will definitely be accused of corruption.
