What is it?
A $25 pre-paid E-ZPass. Use it on your next trip in an E-ZPass lane.
E-ZPass not only allows you to save money on your toll, but also time and gas you're spending on your drive.
Additional discounts are available depending on frequency of usage.
If you cross the Rip Van Winkle, Kingston-Rhinecliff, Mid-Hudson, Newburgh-Beacon, or Bear Mountain Bridges at least 17 times a month, consider signing up for our Commuter Plan. When logged in to your E-ZPass account, select the NYSBA Commuter Plan in the options for your tag.

How does it work?
The $25 price gives you a $15 toll balance and $10 goes for the tag deposit. You need to register the tag after its first use. If you register with a credit card there is no deposit for the tag. When your balance gets below a certain threshold, your account will replenish with your preferred payment method.
