Anyone in PA try this yet? I only really use the PA turnpike and a couple other toll roads around New England and haven't gotten the EZPass because I think it's ridiculous to pay a fee for something that's saving the state money in the first place. But I digress. If someones successfully done this with FAST-LANE in PA, lemme know your experience.
yes, you can use Fast Lane in PA. no problems, however, if there's any discounts given for PA Tpke with a PA based EZ Pass, you'd NOT get the discounts. So you have to determine if the lack of maintainence fee is worth more than any potential toll savings. If you don't use it that often, than the Fast Lane program is a good solution for you.
True - and on top of that if you opt in to the carpool plan (free) and ever drive into some tunnels/ bridges with 3 or more human heads in the car (babies included), you get significant discounts. I think it's $3.50 now instead of regular $12 cash toll in Holland Tunnel. It used to be $2 instead of $8.
Yup I used to do carpool all the time when it was $1 on the HT and GWB. That was the good old days but what can you do.
If you signed up with MD, they'll charge you a monthly $1 fee no matter where you are from. I live in MD and switched to MA's Fast Lane when MD started the whole $1 fee.
There was such a huge uproar when MD started charging the fee. When I had called MD's EZ Pass to cancel my account, they had said that tens of thousands of people had called and requested the same thing. Once cancelled, they credit your account back with the remaining balance in several days.
Can you just go to the Massdot website and sign up for their EZpass regardless if you live there or not? I'm in MD too. I'd like to use EZ pass once in awhile to go on the ICC, but if I can avoid the maintenance fee every month, that'd be sweet.
I live in MD, but got the EZPass from DE to avoid paying monthly fee.

I live in PA and previously had the MD EZ-Pass. When they started charging the fee, I returned the 4 transponders to them and signed up with VA version. No fee and no deposit for the transponders if you sign up for ACH and CC billing. Low balance is $10 x # of transponders and replenishment amount is $35 x # of transponders. No discounts in PA so no need to stick with a PA version if I'm saving on the fee already. It's used every day on 476 with no issues. https://www.ezpassva.com/
Granted I haven't checked the T&Cs lately so I'm going on my past experience signing up over 3 years ago. Hopefully nothing has changed and you can take advantage of it. The last time I was in NY, I think I also got a discount at one of the tunnels or tolls. I can't remember where it was since I travel there so infrequently.
There's a $1/month fee. You might want to check your statement.
WTF? There are bridges that are only $6.50? The freakin Verrazano is like $12! Not all bridges are equal.
My trip to NY cost me $40 in tolls, I have a DE EZPass so couldn't get the car pool discounts. I need to find the NY one from stores... Think some people do not have a fee if they are getting statements online or maybe grandfathered in from before there were fees.
