This change will allow E-ZPass customers to move through the plaza unimpeded as cash customers are directed to dedicated cash lanes. 63% of motorists crossing the Tobin rely on transponders to pay their toll.
“Customers on the Massachusetts Turnpike and at the Airport Tunnels are accustomed to the separate ‘E-ZPASS’ and ‘CASH ONLY’ lanes,” said MassDOT Highway Administrator Frank DePaola. “Tobin commuters will now know what to expect from the drivers in front of them. Predictability will improve safety.”
This change adds flexibility, as lanes designated as ‘E-ZPASS ONLY’ and ‘CASH ONLY’ will be variable to allow MassDOT to better accommodate heavy traffic, emergency incidents or construction on the Tobin. A $44.8 million Tobin Bridge preservation project is currently underway.
This toll collection change is part of the $1.2 million transition from the FastLane to E-ZPass electronic toll collection brand across Massachusetts. Signage has been replaced to reflect the change and the contractor is currently updating the pavement markings at toll plazas from West Stockbridge to Boston.
