E-Z Pass Fees & Information

PUBLIC & GOVERNMENT AFFAIRS AAA believes that toll authorities, states and others that operate toll facilities should use high-speed electronic toll collection systems, which minimize traffic congestion, increase safety and mobility for motorists and reduce emissions from idling vehicles. This chart summarizes E-ZPass fees charged by toll facilities within the AAA Mid-Atlantic territory to enroll and use the system.

AAA strives to post current information. If you believe there is an error in this chart, please e-mail (LINK TO CONTACTS) our Public Affairs department. E-ZPass is available in VA, PA and DE from AAA in stores! (Note: Only offices in the Northern Virginia area sell the Flex transponders.)
