MassDOT has scheduled an upcoming E-ZPass sign-up in anticipation of the early 2014 transition to All Electronic Tolling on the Tobin Bridge. The E-ZPass Street Team will be enrolling new customers in the E-ZPass program at the following location:
Wednesday, December 18, 10am-1pm- Boston’s North End, Nazzaro Community Center, 30 North Bennet Street
E-ZPass is free to join and customers visiting the sign-up receive a transponder onsite.
Beginning early in 2014, motorists will no longer have the option to stop at a toll booth and pay cash on the Tobin Bridge. Tolls will be collected electronically either through the motorist’s E-ZPass transponder or via a program in which a camera captures the license plate and the vehicle’s registered owner is billed by mail.
There are resident discounts available to residents of Charlestown, Chelsea, East Boston, South Boston and the North End. For the Tobin Resident Program, you must be a qualified resident of Charlestown and Chelsea (eligible zip codes are 02129 and 02150). For the Tunnel Communities Resident Program, you must be a qualified resident of East Boston, South Boston, or the North End (eligible zip codes are 02109, 02110, 02113, 02114, 02127, 02128 and 02210).
In order to qualify for either Resident Program, the following requirements must be met. These materials may be presented on December 18 to enroll:
Customers must have a privately owned passenger vehicle; NO COMMERCIAL VEHICLES are allowed.
A valid Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles registration and lease agreement, if applicable, for each registered vehicle.
