How Do You Get a Connecticut E-ZPass?

Obtaining a Connecticut E-ZPass is as easy as going online, choosing your plan option and signing up. Once you receive your E-ZPass tag for your vehicle, follow the accompanying instructions for how to display it properly on your windshield.

E-ZPass is an electronic highway toll paying system that enables drivers to pass through toll plazas without stopping or having to search for money for the tolls. E-ZPass is accepted in 15 states, which are mostly located along the east coast. Drivers can complete applications for the E-ZPass either online or by mailing forms to the E-ZPass agency.

Service users must maintain a pre-paid balance on their accounts. When drivers pass through the toll plaza, their tag is scanned electronically and their pre-paid account is debited at the toll rate. There are two ways to maintain the balance on your account. The first and perhaps most convenient way is to link your account to a credit or debit card. When you reach a certain low balance, the card automatically reloads your card with the amount that you prescribe. Another way to maintain an E-ZPass balance is to mail in money by personal check to one of the service’s local agency locations.
