Why not E-ZPass?

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 80 percent of all toll transactions on the Turnpike and Parkway are now paid with E-ZPass.

ABOUT E-ZPASS

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

 

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 on any of six dozen other toll roads, bridges, and tunnels in the U.S. equipped with E-ZPass. The equipment reads your tag as you go by. And the appropriate toll is automatically deducted from your account balance.

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

And you save money because of the many discounts available only to New Jersey E-ZPass customers.  (To learn about those discounts and for information about how to apply, click on "Toll Schedules, Toll Calculators & Discount Programs" in the "Travel Tools" drop-down menu at the top of this page.)

 

WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

Sign up for your own E-ZPass account today.

Or, if you are already enjoying the many benefits of E-ZPass, you can access all the tools you will need to manage your account by visiting the NJ E-ZPass website or downloading the official NJ E-ZPass mobile app.

(If you choose to use an app other than the official NJ E-ZPass mobile app, the New Jersey Turnpike Authority urges you not to provide your NJ E-ZPass account credentials to any third-party.)
