Nov 18, 2013 · It's a milestone for MTA Bridges and Tunnels. The 250,000 th E-ZPass On-the-Go tag was sold in a toll plaza cash lane at one of its seven bridges and two tunnels. The sale means a quarter of a million drivers have used the new option to switch to the savings and convenience of E-ZPass instead of fumbling for cash and change at tollbooths.
E-ZPass is an electronic toll collection system, which takes cash, coins and toll tickets out of the toll collection process. Instead, drivers establish an account, prepay tolls and attach a small electronic device to their vehicles.
