We have had our MH on I90 a total of about four times so did not see the point in getting and EZ pass. Each time the toll was more than the auto rate without the toad. I finally asked why with the same amount of axles this was. Toll taker #1, duh. Toll taker #2 (with brain) it is because of the height. Explained thank You.

I travel from Geneva to Syracuse (I-81) often, I've always thought the toll was quite reasonable. Less than $5.00 if I remember correctly. Had to use the PA turnpike earlier this year from Carlisle to the Ohio line. That was close to $75.00, now that is what I consider a rip off. I'll continue to use the NY thruway but avoiding PA turnpike entirely.

I am over 8500 lb's with a toad.


I did run the NY Thruway express lane tolls with a bad EZ Pass last year and was charged $18.00 for the whole road. The camera only takes a picture of the toad plate and they billed that pass ( it was in the foil bag ). I paid that because it was less then the toll for 4 exits with the whole rig.
8500???? what do you have,a VW bus?

I was in N.Y. 2 weeks ago on my motorcycle. Crossed the Tappanzee for $5..... I was amazed. I lived there 23 years ago, and it was a fraction of that.

I got over the $5, but for the next 2 days sat in amazement that despite all that money collected,,, the roads are horrible. Pot holes, patched pavement,,,, miles of patched pavement. Really sad that they collect that much cash and can't keep the infrastructure in shape. My friends I visited are paying 10 times the taxes I am here, and get 10 cents on the dollar of value.

For those of you that have the experience of driving the N.Y. State Thruway(I-87). What's the hit from I-84 south to where it crosses into Jersey. I'm 40' pulling a towed. I usually go way around using I-84 to I-81 south heading toward MD.

Ramets, can't ans your question, but if your coming down from Maine,,, and your not in the morning rush hour traffic,,,,,,

try getting off I84 in Brewster NY, take I 684 south to 87 in White Plains and then west across the Tappanzee. Shorter mileage, no toll on the Tappanzee west bound.

Its 29 miles from Newburgh, I 84 south on I 87 to I 287, for $5.25 with 4 axles. From there take I 287 south ( No Tolls ) to NJ and then pick up the NJ Turnpike ( Tolls ). If you stay on I 87 you end up in NY City.


You could pick up the Garden State Parkway south to the NJ Turnpike. There are some low bridges with signs to stay in the center lanes but I don't know the heights. Go to there website for height info. The GSP has tolls.

If headed deep south, consider 287 to I-78 west, crosses Jersey, toll at the Jersey Pa line. Then through Allentown, hits I81 north of Harrisburg. Head south on I81.

Avoids a lot of traffic and hassle of the i95 corridor. A much more pleasant drive, a few more miles, but often quicker as I-95 has so many challenges.

FYI: "Under MAP-21, passed in 2012, all ETC (Electronic Tool Collection) facilities in the United States must reach some form of interoperability by October 1, 2016."

I personally use the Illinois I-Pass even though I don't live in Illinois. Everything related to the I-Pass account can easily be done online. They will even mail you a new one, regardless of where you live. The I-Pass is fully compatible with EZ-Pass. I have used ours from Illinois to Maine without a problem.

Damlock, PA's tolls are done by weight not axles like most places, do the math it works out the PA Turnpike is cheaper per mile. We cross the Harry Nice bridge in MD $18.00 to cross a 2 mile bridge that's 9 bucks a mile. PA pike from Breezewood to New Stanton 86 miles is 26 cents a mile at 30,000 pounds.

Could you post a location that says PA Tpk tolls are by weight? I travel sections of it all the time and have never been weighed. In fact, the only toll toad that used to weigh was the Ohio TPK and when they joined the EZPass network they abandoned the scales. Some scale treadles still remain, but are disconnected and unused.
