E-Z Pass is an electronic toll-collection system.
It is normally a small box placed behind the rear-view mirror.
That transponder "tag" wirelessly identifies your vehicle
to tollbooths to automatically pay tolls at participating highways
such as the New Jersey Turnpike, Garden State Parkway, bridges and tunnels.
Some crossings offer discounts to E-Z Pass users at certain times.
The New Jersey E-Z Pass can be obtained by mail
or at selected Retail Locations.
- There is a $1.00 per month maintenance fee, even if not used.
- You NEED TO SIGN UP to receive your account information every 2 months,
by mail, for free.
That's the best way to confirm the account is in good standing
and check for any unexplained charges.
- Be careful when choosing discount plans: most have a minimum fee!
