In Oklahoma, the PikePass is free, you just have to put $ on it to start -- $40 if using cash payments, $30 if supported by a credit card. You also have to register it to a particular vehicle, so no swapping between moho and toad. Tolls are based on number of axles.

Here in Illinois, the former Land o' Blago, tolls are DOUBLE if you don't have an iPass. And in January the tollway authority snuck a 95% toll increase through.
For now we have no maintenance fee but given that Illinois will never let even a poor excuse for a fee increase pass, I'm sure that will be changing......
Let the Revolution begin!

EZ pass gives a discount on tolls from the state you buy it in. Buy a NH one and get NH discounts and normally no where else. Just convenience. Most states have 2 models one for the car and one for MH. 5th wheelers and trailers I have no idea how they work, probably just use one you got for truck or tow veh. When towing toad behind MH put the puck/transponder in the foil bag as noted and you won't be double counted. Hope that helps. Now if all states would reciprocate life would be good.

If one is going to be traveling toll roads, how do you know which one to get??
There seems to be EZ-Pass, I-Pass, Express Toll and Sunpass at least.
Are any reciprocal?
If the state says [EZ-Pass/I-Pass/Express Toll] will that unit work there?
These were just comming on line when I lived in Chicago area. It isn't the reason I left, but it didn't slow the decision at all.

Well SUNPASS works only in Florida - about the rest of the "Passes" you need to check it out in the state you bought the "Pass" and ask where and which is needed in other states.

OK, but if they say it works in that state, will it work for all the roads in that state?

I'm getting real interested in planning to drive around the toll roads. It can usually be done, but in OK it costs more in fuel than the toll.

Ditto. No Toll roads in Mich! The only tolls are the 3 bridges to Canada and over the Big Mac. We want your business, not give you the business.

Also works in IL and IN. Just came through both.

I got my EZ Pass from Delaware last year when they were free. Got one for the MH and one for the car. They were free all I had to do was put $25.00 in each account.

All the states I am familiar with use one toll transponder system throughout the state. As full-time RVer's we currently carry an EZPass as well as a Houston area pass (it's good in Austin and Dallas, also) and a Florida E-pass. Each of them has maybe $10-20 on its account so it isn't all that much money tied up.

Be real careful about the names of these passes and don't assume that similar names mean they are the same. The Houston EZ Tag is not the same as an EZPass!

Just upgraded in TX to the TX Tag. Its a sticker rather than the old style box. It's good throughout TX.
