7-Eleven, Gas Stations Selling E-ZPass

Retailers helping enroll more electronic toll tag users

NEW YORK -- Drivers will be able to purchase E-ZPass electronic toll tags at gas stations and 7-Eleven stores next year as part of a Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) plan to expand the popular program, the New York agency announced Wednesday, according to

The passes can be purchased for $30 through the E-ZPass-on-the-Go program, which includes $20 that goes toward tolls and a $10 deposit fee. The MTA will refund the deposit once a driver registers with the E-ZPass program using a credit card or checking account within 48 hours.

The MTA Bridges & Tunnels division wants more drivers to use E-ZPass to lessen congestions at tolls, said the report. New customers will also benefit from the discount E-ZPass offers, Joyce Mulvaney, a division spokesperson, told the newspaper.

More than 73% of vehicles that cross tolls at MTA bridges and tunnels already use E-ZPass. The MTA is trying to entice people who may not have applied because they aren't Internet-savvy or for other reasons, the report added.

E-Z Pass functions in 12 northeastern United States from Maine to Virginia. It also functions in Illinois and Indiana.
