Save Money with E-ZPass


What's one great benefit of MMTA membership? All members may enroll in the E-ZPass electronic toll collection system to automate the passage of their trucks through toll facilities across Maryland, as well as other participating states such as Delaware, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

Members who enroll in E-ZPass through the Association receive a discount on their Maryland tolls that is greater than the rate a member can individually receive on its own if it enrolls in E-ZPass through the Transportation Authority (unless the member is receiving the maximum discount of 20%). The MMTA discount rates are based on a member's monthly tolls in Maryland only for 5+ axle vehicles and are as follows:

MD Monthly Tolls

Discount %

$0 - $149

2%

$150 - $1,999

12%

$2,000 - $7,499

17%

$7,500 or more

20%

For those companies who have already enrolled in E-ZPass through the Transportation Authority - you can easily convert to MMTA's program and begin receiving increased toll discounts as well. There is no need to replace your transponders.

Stop paying too much in tolls! Now is the time to save money by enrolling in MMTA's E-ZPass program. Call MMTA for more information and to obtain an application today! You can also download a copy of the application and the terms and conditions by clicking on the links below.
