|E-ZPass Customer Response Prompts Date Extension
NH Toll Discount for Non-Working Transponders Extended to Nov. 1
Due to an overwhelming customer response to notices from the NH Department of Transportation (NHDOT) regarding the possible end of service life for decade old E-ZPass transponders, the NHDOT is extending by two months the date at which non-working transponders (tags) will no longer receive the NH E-ZPass toll discount.
After November 1, 2015, New Hampshire E-ZPass account holders with non-working transponders will have tolls on NH Turnpikes applied at the full toll rate, instead of the discount rate (30% for passenger vehicles and 10% for commercial vehicles).
Customers with transponders have been encouraged to test and/or replace transponders purchased in 2005 if their tag is not being read in the lane to ensure the most efficient and cost-effective toll transactions.
New Hampshire E-ZPass customers should note the following:
Replacement transponders can be ordered on-line at www.ezpassnh.com.
Transponders can be tested at E-ZPass Walk-In Centers in Nashua, Hooksett, and Portsmouth, which can be found at https://www.ezpassnh.com/en/about/csc.shtml. All three Walk-In Centers will offer extended hours for transponder battery testing and purchasing transponders on Saturday, August 29, 2015 from 8:00 am until 4:00 pm.
