EZ Pass

It's been 10 years since New Hampshire started its E-ZPass electronic tolling system, and some of the oldest transponders are nearing the end of their battery life.

Customers with transponders that are at least nine years old are being asked to check their account statements. If their license plate numbers are listed instead of their transponder numbers, the transponder isn't working.


The Department of Transportation announced that the cost of EZ pass transponders will drop by more than half starting in April. The transponders will soon cost $8.90 cents, down from $20.95.

DoT Spokesman Bill Boynton says the drop in price will not only help new EZ pass users, but anyone needing to replace a transponder as well.
