E-ZPass is an electronic toll collection system used on most tolled roads, bridges, and tunnels in the northeastern United States. Electronic toll collection (ETC, an adaptation of military " Identification friend or foe " technology aims to eliminate the delay on Toll roads It is a A road is an identifiable route, way or path between two or more places. A bridge is a Structure built to span a Gorge, Valley, Road, railroad track, River, Body of water A tunnel is an underground passageway The definition of what constitutes a tunnel is not universally agreed upon The United States of America —commonly referred to as the 24 agencies spread across 13 states make up the E-ZPass Interagency Group (IAG). All member agencies use the same technology, allowing travelers to use the same E-ZPass transponder throughout the IAG network. In Telecommunication, the term transponder (short-for Trans mitter-res ponder and sometimes abbreviated to XPDR XPNDR TPDR or TP has the following meanings Various independent systems that use the same technology have been integrated into the E-ZPass system. These include Fast Lane in Massachusetts, Smart Tag in Virginia, I-Pass in Illinois, i-Zoom in Indiana, and the defunct M-Tag in Maryland. Fast Lane is the RFID Electronic toll collection system used in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, USA. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts ( is a state located in the New England region of the northeastern United States. This article describes the toll collection system in Virginia United States The Commonwealth of Virginia ( is an American state I-PASS is the Electronic toll collection system used by the Illinois State Toll Highway Authority on its toll highways The State of Illinois ( roughly ill-i-NOY is a state of the United States of America, the 21st to be admitted to the Union. i-Zoom is the Electronic toll collection system currently used by the Indiana Toll Road. The State of Indiana ( was the 19th US state admitted into the union
Within the IAG, each member agency has its own billing and customer service center; all customer service centers are connected by a secure network (the "reciprocity network"). A bill is a document demanding payment for an order previously supplied Customer service (also known as Client Service) is the provision of service to customers before during and after a purchase The agencies also set their own customer account policies. Areas of variation include the refundable deposit or nonrefundable charge for a tag, periodic maintenance fees, paper statement fees, the low account threshold, and replenishment amounts. E-ZPass is usually offered as a debit account: tolls are deducted from prepayments made by the users. Debit and credit are formal Bookkeeping and Accounting terms They are the most fundamental concepts in accounting representing the two records that one Users may opt to have prepayments automatically deposited when their account is low, or they may submit prepayments manually. For commercial accounts, some agencies allow postpaid plans with a security deposit (which effectively renders them much like prepaid accounts with a different replenishment policy).
Several agencies offer discounted tolls to E-ZPass customers. Discounts and allowances are reductions to a basic Price of goods or services The details vary widely, and can include general discounts for all E-ZPass users, variable pricing discounts for off-peak hours, commuter plans with minimum usage levels, flat rate plans offering unlimited use for a period of time, carpool plans for high-occupancy vehicles, and resident plans for those living near particular toll facilities. Commuting is the process of Travelling between one's place of residence and regular place of work A flat fee, also referred to as a flat rate or a linear rate, refers to a pricing structure that charges a single fixed fee for a service Carpooling (also known as car-sharing, ride-sharing, lift-sharing) is the shared use of a car by the driver and one or more passengers usually In Transportation engineering and Transportation planning, a high-occupancy vehicle lane (or HOV lane) is a lane reserved for Vehicles with House generally refers to a Shelter or Building that is a Dwelling or place for Habitation by Human beings. Many of these plans are only available to customers whose tags are issued by the agency that owns the toll facility in question. (Reciprocity only applies to tag acceptance, not to discounts. ) Three authorities in New England (Maine, the Massachusetts Turnpike, and New Hampshire) restrict even their general discounts to their own respective tagholders.
E-ZPass tags are battery powered RFID transponders, made exclusively by Mark IV Industries Corp - IVHS Division. Radio-frequency identification ( RFID) is an automatic identification method relying on storing and remotely retrieving data using devices called RFID tags or They communicate with reader equipment built into lane-based or open road toll collection lanes. The most common type of tag is mounted on the inside of the vehicle's windshield behind the rear-view mirror. The windshield or windscreen of an Aircraft, Automobile, Bus, Motorcycle, or Tram is the front Window Some vehicles have windshields that block RFID signals. For those vehicles, an externally-mountable tag is offered, typically designed to attach to the vehicle's front license plate mounting points. A vehicle registration plate is a metal or plastic plate attached to a Motor vehicle or trailer for official identification purposes
Most E-ZPass lanes are converted manual toll lanes and must have fairly low speed limits for safety reasons (5 and 15 mph are typical). In some areas, however (typically recently built or retrofitted facilities), there is no need to slow down, as E-ZPass users utilize dedicated traffic lanes ("Express E-ZPass") outside the toll booth (examples include Delaware Route 1, Virginia's Pocahontas Parkway, the Garden State Parkway's express lanes, and the Pennsylvania Turnpike's Warrendale and Mid-County (I-476) Toll Plazas). A toll road, (also known as a tollway, turnpike, pike, or toll highway, especially if it is constructed to Freeway standards Delaware Route 1 is a 10302 mile (16579 km long four-to-six lane highway going from the Maryland - Delaware State line on the eastern Atlantic shoreline State Route 895, also known as the Pocahontas Parkway and Pocahontas 895, is a primary State highway in the U The Garden State Parkway ( GSP) is a 1724-mile (277-km limited-access toll Parkway that stretches the length of New Jersey from the New York The Pennsylvania Turnpike is a toll highway system operated by the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission in the state of Pennsylvania, United States. In addition, Illinois is undertaking a US$730 million project to add open road tolling for IPass/E-ZPass users at every toll plaza on the Tollway system; a few plazas, such as the 163rd Street Toll Plaza on the Tri-State Tollway, already had a similar high-speed setup called IPass Express and will get more lanes in the Open Road Tolling project. The State of Illinois ( roughly ill-i-NOY is a state of the United States of America, the 21st to be admitted to the Union. Open road tolling (ORT is the collection of tolls on Toll roads without the use of Toll booths The major advantage to ORT is that users are able to drive through The Tri-State Tollway is a US Toll road maintained by the Illinois State Toll Highway Authority (ISTHA in northeastern Illinois.
Each E-ZPass tag is specifically programmed for a particular class of vehicle, and while any valid, working tag will be read and accepted in any E-ZPass toll lane, the wrong toll amount will be charged if the tag's programmed vehicle class does not match the vehicle. This will result in a violation and possible large fine assessed to the tag holder, especially if a lower-class (e. g. , passenger car) tag is being used in a higher-class vehicle such as a bus or truck. In an attempt to avoid this, E-ZPass tags for commercial vehicles are blue in color, contrasting with the white tags assigned to standard passenger vehicles. The blue E-ZPass is also used in government employee vehicles. In the New York metro area, an orange E-ZPass is issued to emergency vehicles and to MTA and PANYNJ employees.
Some agencies have imposed periodic account maintenance fees on their subscribers. After New Jersey began losing money with the E-ZPass system, a monthly account fee of $1. 00 was implemented on July 15, 2002 and is still in effect. Events 1099 - First Crusade: Christian soldiers take the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem after the final See also 2002 (disambiguation Year 2002 ( MMII) was a Common year starting on Tuesday of the Gregorian calendar.

Some agencies, instead of charging periodic account fees, charge a one-time fee between $20. 00 and $30. 00 for each new transponder, including the Delaware Department of Transportation, the New Hampshire Department of Transportation, and the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority. One agency, the Delaware River and Bay Authority, is now charging multiple fees. In a press release dated July 17, 2007, the DRBA stated: "Beginning January 1, 2008, all DRBA E-ZPass account holders will be charged an account management fee of $1. Events 180 - Twelve inhabitants of Scillium in North Africa are executed for being Christians Year 2007 ( MMVII) was a Common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar in the 21st century. 50 per month. The transponder cost will also be passed on to E-ZPass customers for each new transponder. "
Some agencies that do not charge a monthly account fee or an initial fee for the transponder include the Maryland Transportation Authority, the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission, the Peace Bridge Authority of New York and Ontario and the Illinois State Toll Highway Authority. The Illinois I-PASS system does charge a $10 deposit for each transponder. The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission charges an annual account fee of $3. 00. However, PTC transponders are free and there are no other fees. E-ZPass users are not required to maintain their account with an agency in their home state. Subscribers can open an E-ZPass account with any member of the IAG regardless of residency. This means that users have the option of choosing an agency based on the fees that it charges, effectively allowing them to circumvent transponder and account maintenance fees.
The notion of electronic tolling had been considered as early as the 1980s, particularly in the New York metropolitan area. The New York metropolitan area, often referred to as the Tri-State Area, is the most populous Metropolitan area in the United States and is also one The tolling agencies of New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania — which constitute two-thirds of the United States' $3 billion a year toll industry — sought to create a compatible electronic tolling technology that could be used on the toll roads and bridges of the three states, in an effort to reduce congestion on some of the busiest roadways and toll plazas in the United States. New York ( is a state in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern regions of the United States and is the nation's third most populous New Jersey ( is a state in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern regions of the United States. The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania ( often colloquially referred to as PA (its abbreviation by natives and Northeasterners is a state located in the Northeastern In 1991, the E-ZPass IAG was created to develop an interoperable system, and involved the participation and cooperation of seven independent toll agencies — The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission, The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, The New Jersey Turnpike Authority, The New Jersey Highway Authority (operator of the Garden State Parkway at the time), the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority, the New York State Thruway Authority, and the South Jersey Transportation Authority (operator of the Atlantic City Expressway).
Under the direction of Peter Tufo, the Chairman of the New York State Thruway from 1989-1996, E-ZPass was first deployed on the Thruway at the Spring Valley toll plaza on August 3, 1993. Peter Francis Tufo was the US Ambassador to Hungary from 1997-2001 and helped found the law firm Tufo Johnston & Zuccotti in 1970 The New York State Thruway (officially the Governor Thomas E Dewey Thruway) is a limited-access toll Highway in the U Events 8 - Roman Empire General Tiberius defeats Dalmatians on the river Bathinus.

By February 6, 1997, E-ZPass had been installed along the entire length of the corridor. Events 46 BC - Julius Caesar defeats the combined army of Pompeian followers and Numidians under Metellus Scipio Year 1997 ( MCMXCVII) was a Common year starting on Wednesday (link will display full 1997 Gregorian calendar
Meanwhile, various other agencies began work on similar electronic toll collecting facilities. This resulted in the emergence of other networks:
Originally, these systems were not interchangeable with E-ZPass. However, since most of them use the same technology (or have since converted over to a compatible technology), all of them have been incorporated into the E-ZPass network. Though several still retain their own brand name for their own facilities, users of those systems can use E-ZPass and vice versa.
Until 2005, drivers crossing the Peace Bridge between Fort Erie, Ontario and Buffalo, New York paid a toll before crossing to Canada.

This is the only E-ZPass toll booth outside of the United States, and the only toll booth in Ontario. The toll goes to the Peace Bridge Authority, a bi-national agency that is charged to maintain the international bridge. The Buffalo and Fort Erie Public Bridge Authority (also known as the Peace Bridge Authority) is a Public benefit corporation that regulate the Peace Bridge
The E-ZPass system continues to expand. The Indiana Toll Road Concessions Corporation has upgraded its toll plazas to include E-ZPass functionality on the Indiana East-West Toll Road, while the Ohio Turnpike Commission plans to upgrade their system to be compatible with E-ZPass by October 2009 for the Ohio Turnpike (I-76, I-80, I-90).

E-ZPass ETC transponders do not work on all toll roads in the U. S. Currently, the E-ZPass electronic toll-collection system (as well as the other ETC systems that are part of the E-Zpass network) are not compatible with Florida systems (including SunPass and E-Pass), California's FasTrak, or other ETC systems outside of the E-ZPass operating regions.

Albany International Airport is an airport of entry serving Albany, New York. Albany is the Capital of the State of New York and the County seat of Albany County. Drivers obtain tickets as they enter the parking lots, as usual. Upon exiting the parking lot, individuals use either the "E-ZPass Plus Only" or manned lanes. Those wishing to pay using their E-ZPass accounts simply insert the ticket into the machine reader. The parking payment is debited from the prepaid E-ZPass account if the parking fee is less than $20. If it is more than $20, the amount is charged directly to the credit card used to replenish the E-ZPass account. The Port Authority reports that drivers save an average of 15 seconds by opting to pay for airport parking using E-ZPass.
In Atlantic City, New Jersey drivers can now park at the New York Avenue Garage and the Atlantic Avenue Surface Lot and pay for their parking by E-ZPass Plus.
The New York State Fair offered E-ZPass Plus as a payment option at two of its parking lots for the first time in 2007. The Great New York State Fair is an annual farmers' exposition and a 12-day showcase of entertainment education industry and technology sponsored by the State of New York The service was administered by the New York State Thruway Authority (NYSTA), and motorists' E-ZPass accounts were charged the same $5 parking fee that cash customers were charged. The New York State Thruway (officially the Governor Thomas E Dewey Thruway) is a limited-access toll Highway in the U The New York State Thruway (officially the Governor Thomas E Dewey Thruway) is a limited-access toll Highway in the U Unlike other E-ZPass Plus implementations, the State Fair systems charged motorists at the parking lot entrances; drivers opting to pay by E-ZPass Plus used dedicated "E-ZPass Plus Only" lanes. Since the parking lots are only in use for the twelve days of the State Fair, mobile, self-contained E-ZPass units were used to process vehicles. The units were mounted on trailers with a collapsible gantry for the E-ZPass antennas, used a cellular wireless connection to send transactions to the NYSTA backoffice system, and were powered by batteries that were kept replenished by photovoltaic solar panels, with a generator for backup. The New York State Thruway (officially the Governor Thomas E Dewey Thruway) is a limited-access toll Highway in the U
At this time, subscribers who replenish their E-ZPass accounts with cash or a check cannot participate in this program. Additionally, this service is only available to customers with New York (PANYNJ, MTA or NYS Thruway), New Jersey, Delaware DOT, Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission, Delaware River and Bay Authority, or Maryland E-ZPass accounts.
Although not part of the EZPass-Plus promotion, E-ZPass users may also pay for parking at Pittsburgh International Airport. Pittsburgh International Airport, formerly Greater Pittsburgh Airport Greater Pittsburgh International Airport and commonly referred to as PIT is an international Airport To register for this, E-ZPass users need to first bring their transponder number to the Grant-Oliver parking office at the airport and enroll in their FastPass parking program. All parking fees are directly charged to the credit card number on file with Grant-Oliver, not to the E-ZPass agency, meaning that the E-ZPass transponder is used for identification only.
E-ZPass was tested by some McDonald's restaurants on Long Island, New York, where drive-through customers were given the option to pay using their E-ZPass accounts.

The E-ZPass system is part of a much larger US DOT ITS set of projects. The United States Department of Transportation ( DOT) is a federal Cabinet department of the United States government concerned with Transportation The term intelligent transportation system (ITS refers to efforts to add Information and communications technology to Transport Infrastructure 
The E-ZPass technology can be used not only for toll collection, but also allows vehicles to become "probes. " In commercial vehicles, it is envisioned as an "automated vehicle identification" electronic license plate.
In U. S. commercial vehicles, it is envisioned that with the advent of a federalized driver's license, a mechanism will be provided to individual drivers to use their commercial drivers licenses to identify themselves to a vehicle's E-ZPass transponder. This will allow not only weigh in motion measurements for the vehicle class, but also updates of the transponder's memory for determining the current driver of the vehicle. Weigh-in-motion (WIM devices are designed to capture and record Truck Axle weights and gross vehicle weights as they drive over a sensor
This is why the E-ZPass transponder implements a read/write technology, as opposed to read-only, which would suffice if its intended purpose was solely for toll collection.
In 1991, the original seven agencies jointly adopted an interagency policy statement that endorsed a plan to procure a unified and compatible system of tags and readers. The plan sought to ensure that one automatic vehicle identification toll tag could be used for travel throughout the entire region. The testing and selection of an electronic toll collection system motivated the representatives from these toll agencies to form the E-ZPass IAG.
The first obstacle that the E-ZPass IAG members had to overcome was the issue of whether to purchase a read-only or a read-write system. The agencies with open-system tollbooths (that collect a fixed toll) only needed read-only technology. The toll authorities with closed (distance-based) toll systems desired the read-write technology so that they could track entry as well as exit points of their customers. Additionally, all recognized that if an electronic toll collection system was to migrate to the communications methods required for advanced traffic management and traveler information systems, the electronic tags must be capable of two-way communications. After a period of negotiations, the members reached a consensus and selected the read-write technology.
The data generated by the TRANSMIT project is a key component of the Model Deployment Initiative. When merged with other data supplied by the TRANSCOM member agencies, it will form the basis for providing accurate, up-to-date, and much-needed travel information to the commuting public.
TRANSCOM members, many of whom are also involved with the E-ZPass effort, saw the benefits of building incident detection and congestion monitoring functions upon the E-ZPass system. Additional readers could be installed along the highway to provide TRANSCOM with regional incident detection and congestion management data. The members postulated that, while maintaining customer anonymity and confidentiality, vehicles participating in the E-ZPass system could be used as probes to detect congestion and incidents and assess such factors as vehicle speed and travel times. Therefore, they moved forward to assess the feasibility of and to design an advanced traffic management system operational test based on electronic toll collection technology.
TRANSCOM members reasoned that, if the operational test was successful, it could ultimately provide the region an extensive traffic surveillance system at a reasonable incremental increase over the cost of providing electronic toll and traffic management for toll collection only. 
Civil liberties and privacy rights advocates have expressed concern about how the position data gathered through E-ZPass is used. As of August 2007, several states that employ E-ZPass have provided electronic toll information in response to court orders in civil cases, including divorces and other non-criminal matters. 
A potential subscriber may establish an account with any IAG member agency regardless of residency. Some E-ZPass agencies charge various fees.
