West Coast to East Coast Pulling a 2 Axle Trailer

We will be heading to the East coast soon and would like to get a EZ Pass (or something like that) our here in the west we do not have toll roads so I know nothing about EZ Passes...

I would like to buy in advance so I don't have to worry about having change when we pass through.....

Thanks in Advance LeeB

We have a Pick-up pulling a 2 Axel Travel Trailer....

If you don't manage to get one in advance, you can get one at most any toll road "oasis." However, in many cases, the counter where they are sold will only be open during normal business hours.

If you have AAA, they may be able to get one for you with enough lead time. I got mine for Florida at a AAA store. Or you could go on line for each state that has it, see who has the best deal and order on line. Include your truck licence number and the one for the trailer. Doesn't cost more, but saved later in case it doesn't read the transponder and takes a picture of your tag. That will be the trailer tag.

You can buy one on line at the Ohio Turnpike page.. You set up a pre-paid account, They send you the transponder (takes a week) already registered and ready to go..

Call their customer service number (I think they are closed on weekends) 440-971-2222.

The page to set up your account is :

I will be in the same situation next year. We will be spending 1.5 years east of the Mississippi river. If I understand correctly one transponder will work in all states.

I got my transponders through Mass. There is no charge for the devices but you must keep a balance on the account. I have two for my truck, one for the truck alone, the other when I am towing. It used to be easy to throw the transponders from one vehicle to the other but not now. In Mass for instance there are no tolls, just overhead readers. Your transponder has to match the plate that it is registered to. No transponder means a higher toll charge and a bill in the mail.

The tolls for the NY bridges will kill you without an EZ Pass. The new TapanZee bridge also has no tolls, just overhead readers.

Illinois has IPass. It is the same as EZPass.

I have one transponder. It is good for my car(s) or my camper or both when towing the car.

In Illinois the tolls are half price when using the pass. I do not remember if there was a discount going east. But IPass is recognized by all EZPass readers.

When I signed up it was $40 to open an account. The transponder is free. When my account gets to $10 they automatically bring it back up to $40 and send me a notice of the transaction.

Hope this helps
