Can You Purchase a Massachusetts Turnpike EZ Pass Online?

Private vehicle owners can order the Massachusetts E-ZPass from the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) website. Once activated, the pass works on all MassDOT E-ZPass toll roads, including the Massachusetts Turnpike.

The E-ZPass transponder is free and is mailed to vehicle owners when a valid payment plan is set up. The typical plan involves an automatic charge when the account balance drops below a certain threshold, usually $10. Automatic payments are usually made in $20 increments, although for heavy users' payments are made in $40 increments.

Commercial vehicle owners and those wishing to purchase a carpool pass cannot purchase the E-ZPass through the MassDOT website and must instead call MassDOT customer service.
