NH Turnpike System Introduces E-Zpass “On-The-Go”
Convenient Transponder Can Be Used Immediately For Tolls

There are no lines and no waiting with E-ZPass “On-the-Go.” The New Hampshire Department of Transportation is adding to the benefits of electronic tolling with the introduction of a transponder that can be used immediately anywhere E-ZPass is accepted.

“E-ZPass On-the-Go is a ready-to-use, convenient option as a gift, for vacationers, or for anyone looking to travel as far south as Virginia or west to Indiana,” says Bob Christensen, Toll Manager at the NHDOT’s Turnpikes Bureau. “Those driving on the New Hampshire Turnpikes System won’t have to wait to take advantage of a 30 percent discount. The goal of this effort is to provide another E-ZPass customer service feature.”

The pre-programmed E-ZPass transponders with $9.05 in pre-loaded tolls can be purchased at AAA Offices in New Hampshire and Maine for $30. The balance of $20.95 is the cost of the transponder. Mounting strips are included in the packaging. Those purchasing E-ZPass on the go will have three days to open up an E-ZPass account, or add the transponder to an existing account.

In addition to the AAA outlets, E-ZPass On-the-Go will be available during Memorial Day Weekend at the following locations:

  • Friday, May 27 – Hooksett Rest Area northbound from Noon to 6:00 pm
  • Saturday, May 28 – Hooksett Rest area northbound from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm
  • Monday, May 30 – Hooksett Rest area southbound from 2:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Approximately 62% of all motorists driving on the New Hampshire Turnpike System use E-ZPass. For more information on E-ZPass and E-ZPass On-the-Go purchasing locations, visit www.ezpassnh.com.
