EZPass Vehicle, July 2013The MassDOT E-ZPass Street Team will sign up customers and issue free transponders tomorrow, Thursday September 5, in Lee and Chicopee.   The sign ups come ahead of the October 15 restoration of tolls on the Massachusetts Turnpike between Interchanges 1 – 6.

Visit the E-ZPass crew in Lee at the Big Y Supermarket, 10 Pleasant Street, from 10am until Noon.  E-ZPass will then travel east to issue transponders at the Big Y Supermarket in Chicopee, 650 Memorial Drive, from 1pm until 3pm.

E-ZPass customers with an orange non-revenue transponder are also encouraged to stop by tomorrow to exchange that device, which will no longer work after October 15.

“With the restoration of tolls approaching, we want to make sure as many Turnpike users as possible have access to the convenience of electronic toll collection,” said MassDOT Highway Administrator Frank DePaola.

Additional on-site E-ZPass sign-ups will be scheduled in this region in the coming weeks. Customers may also join E-ZPass online at Mass.gov/EZPassMA or by phone, 877-627-7745.

MassDOT is also holding two public hearings on the toll restoration next week.  The hearings will include a brief presentation and time for comments and questions, and exchange of orange transponders or sign up for the E-ZPass program.   The hearings are as follows:

Tuesday, September 10, 6pm -9pm, Lee High School, 300 Greylock Street
Thursday, September 12, 6pm-9pm, Mass Mutual Center, 1277 Main Street, Springfield
