Travel Resources: E-ZPass Information

About E-ZPass

E-ZPass is an electronic toll collection system that will save you time and money.

E-ZPass made its debut in New Jersey in 1999 when it became operational at the Garden State Parkway toll plaza now known as Pascack Valley. It was introduced on the Turnpike the following year. The technology has been embraced enthusiastically by our patrons. More than 70 percent of the toll transactions on the Turnpike and Parkway are now paid with E-ZPass.

Here’s how it works

You open an E-ZPass account and make an initial deposit of at least $25. We supply you with an E-ZPass tag. You mount the tag to your car. You begin choosing the clearly marked E-ZPass lanes on the New Jersey Turnpike, the Garden State Parkway, or any of the more than 75 other toll facilities in the U.S. equipped with E-ZPass. Our equipment reads your tag as you go by. And the appropriate toll is automatically deducted from your account balance.

You save time and fuel because you don't need to wait in line to pay your toll.

And you save money because of discounts available only to E-ZPass customers. Those include the Senior Discount for drivers 65 years of age and older and the Green Discount for drivers whose vehicles meet strict fuel economy and emissions standards. Check the Toll Rates page for details about those and other E-ZPass discounts.
