When you cross the border of Wi and IL on 94 the is a flying J at exit 1 or 2 in s. Beloit. When you turn right at the end of the exit the flying j will be on your right. directly across the street on your left is another truck stop. They sell the transponders in there also. A few years ago the cost was $50.00. $10 for the store and $40.00 credit on transponder.

The transponder instructions say to mount it at the bottom middle of the windshield for RVs and the top middle of the windshield for a car. It is attached by velcro so it can be removed to another vehicle. If in an RV with a TOAD you only need one in the RV. We purchased two transponders just to make our life easier. We may drive a different car through Chicago (without the RV) sometimes. We just hand hold the transponder up when we go under the "need money" troll gate.

I'll add my vote for the EZPass transponder. You get a break on the tolls and don't have to stop in IL. OH you'll have to coast through a toll booth, but no stop.

FYI - without the I-Pass transponder tolls are DOUBLE if paid by cash. Just another way the wonderful State of CORRUPTION screws the citizenry....

It will be cheaper to go a 1000 miles out of the way as to go through IL. Last year coming home from wis dells we went through IL had to sell motorhome after all there tolls. Best that I can remember it cost anywhere from $4.50-$12.00 at each one and there was like 10 of them.

It's been "open road" toll collection for years on I294. 2 axles six tires is $10-15 to go north/south through Illinois. Some places like the Pennsylvania turnpike have the old style toll booths where the road begins. My first time in Pennsylvania I had no idea my EZ pass worked on their system. The toll collector and I just sat staring at each other. Finally she realized I was ignorant.

I sure an EZ pass can be purchased online. I don't believe its transferrable between vehicles. Although I don't think anyone gets in trouble moving it between same class vehicles. They just want the money after all.
