EZPass Sign Up, Lynn, June 24, 2014MassDOT is encouraging motorists to join E-ZPass as All-Electronic Tolling is being implemented this summer on the Tobin Bridge.

The E-ZPass Street Team will be enrolling new customers in the E-ZPass program throughout the region in the coming weeks. E-ZPass is free to join and customers receive a transponder onsite.

The Street Team’s upcoming schedule is part of MassDOT’s continued efforts to enroll new customers in the E-ZPass program as the Tobin Bridge makes the conversion to all-electronic tolling. Tolls will be collected electronically through the E-ZPass transponder or via a “pay-by-plate” system, where an image of a license plate is taken and an invoice will be sent to the address listed on the vehicle registration. This means that vehicles will no longer stop at a toll plaza to pay cash.

In addition to the sign up sessions listed below, you may also join E-ZPass online, Mass.gov/EZPassMA or by phone, 877-627-7745. Transponders are also available at Registry of Motor Vehicles branches and from AAA.
