Tobin Memorial Bridge Goes All Electronic on Monday, July 21, 2014
Motorists no longer need to stop at a toll booth to pay cash for their toll or slow down to pass through an E-ZPass lane. Tolls will be collected electronically; either through the motorist’s E-ZPass transponder or via the PAY BY PLATE MA program.

Welcome to E-ZPass
MA, Massachusetts Department of Transportation Electronic Toll Collection Program. E-ZPass
is operational on the entire Massachusetts Turnpike including the Sumner and Ted Williams Tunnels, and on the Tobin Memorial Bridge. Where can I use E-ZPass?
E-ZPass provides customers with electronic toll collection through the use of a transponder. A transponder is a small electronic device that attaches to the inside of your windshield. As you pass through a designated lane, a green "Thank You" light will flash to verify your transaction is being approved and recorded to your account.
