I have been an E-Z Pass holder for many years. We travel a lot on the Thruway, mainly from here to Buffalo and back. If I were to add it up, we have saved a ton being E-Z Pass holders. Well if you have been thinking of becoming one, there is a great incentive from the state. With the success of the E-Z Pass program, The New York Thruway Authority announced it is launching an incentive program to attract new customers. New customers will get a ten dollar discount. The discount will be added after new customers take ten trips on the Thruway within six months.

I love the ease of using the scan tags especially with how often we travel across the state. It is quick and convenient and by 2020, the Thruway Authority is expanding the cashless tolling system. So they are hoping this incentive will bring more people to the party now.

To take advantage of the discount, you can purchase the E-Z Pass on the go tag at over 780 locations across the state. It must be registered between Thursday, Feb. 1 through Monday, Feb. 26, 2018 to receive the account credit.

Or you can log onto the E-Z Pass website to get more information.
