Miscellaneous FAQs
How can I identify an E-ZPass lane?
Lanes are appropriately marked by canopy signs that reflect whether E-ZPass can be used at that lane.
What if I get into a non-E-ZPass lane by mistake?
In the event you enter a toll lane that is not equipped with E-ZPass, you will be required to pay the full cash toll. Never back up in a toll lane unless instructed to do so by toll plaza personnel.
Under what conditions can I get a violation?
There are two situations in which you can receive a violation:
  1. Toll Evasion: When you drive through a lane without a valid E-ZPass tag being properly mounted in your vehicle.
  2. Insufficient Funds: When your account is insufficient and you travel through an "E-ZPass Only" lane.
  3. Class Mismatch: When the vehicle class of the tag you are using does not match that of the vehicle you are driving.
I sometimes pull a camper or trailer with my vehicle. Can I still use my tag?
Yes. In this instance the equipment in the lane is designed to identify that your vehicle is pulling a trailer and you will be charged accordingly. However, if you think this will be a regular occurrence, you should call the Customer Service Center and have them send you a tag programmed for the vehicle classification you use most frequently. You should never use your tag in a vehicle type other than the one you initially requested (i.e. Car tag in a tractor-trailer).
Are motorcycles eligible for an E-ZPass account?
Yes. Motorcyclists are eligible to participate in the E-ZPass program.
Are there any other fees associated with this service?
There is a monthly $1.00 fee in New Jersey.
Do I need to register all my vehicles?
You should provide the Customer Service Center with details of non-rental vehicles which will use your E-ZPass account.
Do not add rental car information to your E-ZPass account. However, you can use your E-ZPass tag in any vehicle with two axles, a maximum gross weight of 7,000 pounds, and single rear tires (includes RV's with dual rear tires). Please ensure that the E-ZPass tag is mounted as per the tag installation instructions in all vehicles in which the tag will be used.
