MTA Bridges and Tunnels plans on selling $30 “E-ZPass on the Go” tags at corner stores, gas stations and pharmacies citywide – similar to NYC Transit’s MetroCard sales, officials told the NY Daily News on Wednesday.
“We are making it as convenient as possible to try E-ZPass because the more tags in use, the faster the trip through the toll plaza for everyone,” said acting Bridges and Tunnels President David Moretti, noting that 75% of motorists already use the technology.
Purchasers will have 48 hours to convert the new tags into permanent E-ZPasses by registering in an MTA account. If they choose not to, only $20 can be used for tolls, with $10 withheld as a tag deposit.
The new tags will be available by the end of the year.
