The Madison County Clerk’s Office announced today that you are able to purchase E-ZPass On-the-Go tags at the Madison County DMV.
In his State of the State Address earlier this year, New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo touted that the New York State Thruway tolls will become cashless by 2020. He called for the removal of traditional toll booths and pledged to replace them with all-electronic tolling.
“Now is the time to stop in and get an E-ZPass. We here at the Madison County DMV want to make sure the community is ready for the expansion of cashless tolling system-wide in 2020,” said Madison County Clerk, Michael Keville. “E-ZPass is a tool that saves the customer time, money and produces less paper waste.”
E-ZPass On-the-Go are available for a one-time fee of $25. Customers must then register the tag online or by calling the number listed on the package. The $25 is then credited to the customer’s account and the tag becomes active in 24 hours. For every tag purchased here in Madison County $4 stays right here in the County.
According to the New York State Thruway Authority, E-ZPass is used for more than 73 percent of travel system-wide. And note that E-ZPass is accepted in 16 states nationwide.
