MassDOT and the City of Revere have scheduled upcoming E-ZPass sign-up sessions ahead of the 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 locations:
Saturday, January 25, 9am-3pm, Stop & Shop, 540 Squire Road, Revere
Thursday, February 6, 10am-2pm, Stop & Shop, 40 Furlong Drive, Suffolk Downs, Revere
Thursday, February 13, 10am-2pm, Stop & Shop, 40 Furlong Drive, Suffolk Downs, Revere
Beginning in the spring of 2014, motorists will no longer have the option to stop at a toll booth and pay cash for their Tobin Bridge toll. Tolls will be collected electronically in one of two ways: 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. E-ZPass is free to join and customers receive a transponder onsite.
In addition to these sign up sessions, motorists may also join E-ZPass online, or by phone, 877-627-7745. An E-ZPass Customer Service Center is now open at the Square One Mall in Saugus, Hours: Tue-Wed-Thurs-Fri from 12pm-8pm, Sat 10am-6pm, Sun-Mon Closed.
