MassDOT has scheduled an upcoming E-ZPass sign-up session ahead of the transition to All Electronic Tolling on the Tobin Bridge. The E-ZPass Street Team will be enrolling new customers in the E-ZPass program at the following location:
Boston’s North End at the Nazzaro Community Center, 30 North Bennet Street, Wednesday December 18th from 10am to 1pm
Beginning early in 2014, motorists will no longer have the option to stop at a toll booth and pay cash for their Tobin Bridge toll. Tolls will be collected electronically in one of two ways: either through the motorist’s E-ZPass transponder or via a program in which a camera captures the license plate and the vehicle’s registered owner is billed by mail. E-ZPass is free to join and customers receive a transponder onsite.
There are several resident discounts available to residents of Charlestown, Chelsea, East Boston, South Boston and the North End.
For the Tobin Resident Program – Must be a qualified resident of Charlestown and Chelsea (eligible zip codes are 02129 and 02150).
For the Tunnel Communities Resident Program – Must be a qualified resident of East Boston, South Boston, or the North End (eligible zip codes are 02109, 02110, 02113, 02114, 02127, 02128 and 02210).
In order to qualify for either Resident Program, the following requirements must be met. These materials may be presented on December 18 to enroll:
- Customers must have a privately owned passenger vehicle, NO COMMERCIAL VEHICLES are allowed.
