New "Prepay a NH Trip" Option for Turnpike Travel
Available to Those Without E-Zpass Accounts

It is now possible for motorists who are not E-ZPass customers and do not have transponders to utilize the benefits of E-ZPass on the New Hampshire Turnpike System. The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) announces a new E-ZPass account option that allows travelers to "Prepay a NH Trip" and use dedicated E-ZPass lanes and Open Road Tolling (ORT) lanes.

Under this option, payments are made in advance of a trip on New Hampshire turnpikes by establishing a prepaid account and registering a license plate. Images of the license plate traveling through the dedicated E-ZPass lane or ORT lane will be matched to the account and the toll will be automatically deducted from the prepaid account balance.

Rules for this E-ZPass option include:

  • Prepaid trips are not discounted. Tolls will be charged at the full fare.
  • An account must be opened with a minimum balance of $1.00.
  • Multiple vehicles may be registered on an account.
  • There is no limit to the number of trips that can be prepaid.
  • Accounts can be automatically replenished by credit card.
