Pay by Plate Options
There are two types of Pay by Plate customers:
Customers without an E-ZPass transponder will receive an invoice for the toll generated through license plate recognition.
Prior to an invoice being issued, the license plate will be double-checked through the E-ZPass database. If it is associated with a pre-paid account that has available funds, the toll will be deducted from that account and an invoice will not be issued.
Registered accounts allow customers to regularly manage their accounts online, to create pre-paid accounts and to possibly be eligible for future discounts.
