[QUOTE=jcutonilli;5221053]I think you misunderstood. The transponder is now free. Using EZpass gives a 25% discount on tolls. The cash price for the Bay Bridge is $4, the EZpass price is $2.50.


ok that makes more sense then. He was using a magic marker crossing out prices on a sign and the one next to EZ-Pass said "free" which was confusing. Figured maybe he would allow it to be free at the Bridge and then just raise the tolls at the other ones without saying anything lol Still a pretty nice reduction.

They are refunding some. According to the press release:

Quote:
In addition, the MDTA will replace nearly 400,000 aged transponders that are currently in circulation at no cost to customers. Anyone who bought a transponder in 2018 will be issued a credit of $7.50 as long as the account is registered and in good standing. Customers who bought a transponder this calendar year will see the $7.50 credit on their accounts in the next several weeks.

Question, how does the HOV/carpool setting work on the VA transponders in VA? It’s supposed to be cheaper during peak times? Flip a switch and it’s free or reduced, or I may be incorrect. And as a MD resident, can I get and use said device instead of my one setting MD version?

RTFM

from the VA EZpass site https://www.ezpassva.com/EZPages/New-Flex.aspx

[QUOTE]E-ZPass Flex Transponder
Toll-free travel on High Occupancy Toll and the 64, 66, 95/495 Express Lanes
E-ZPass Flex is an E-ZPass with an additional switchable feature designed specifically for those traveling on Virginia High Occupancy Toll (HOT) or Express Lanes. This innovative transponder will specifically benefit those who are traveling with the number of people in their vehicle required to qualify for an HOV discount (2 or 3 depending on the roadway).


When you have the required number of people in your vehicle for that roadway, you can simply slide the switch to the right and the Flex transponder will display "HOV ON." Do this before entering the roadway and you can ride the designated HOT or Express Lanes without having to pay any tolls. For those riding with fewer than the required number of people in the vehicle, just slide the switch all the way to the left, covering the words "HOV ON," and travel the designated HOT or Express Lanes at the posted toll rate. E-ZPass Flex also works like a standard E-ZPass on all other toll roads in Virginia and wherever E-ZPass is accepted regardless of the position of the switch.


Please Note: Users who have not used their Flex transponder for HOV transactions on Express Lanes for a prior six month period will be required to exchange their Flex transponder for a standard transponder (at no cost) or be subject to a one-time transponder functionality upgrade charge of $10. This only applies to transponders issued after October 1st 2014. [QUOTE]

see also the Express lane website https://www.expresslanes.com/using-ezpass on getting a flex transponder. They are supposedly available in MD.

I think WBAL made the same incorrect assumption I did.

http://www.wbal.com/article/314244/3...ay-bridge-toll

"Due to an error at the governor's news conference, this article initially stated that tolls on the Bay Bridge would be free."

Does the EZ pass on the go work for these items also?

Or is it the unloaded version only?

Someone on another forum asked a similar question today. I logged onto my ezpass account and when I clicked the "order additional transponders" there was an option for the flex, at $16.50. The standard was $0.00. and some sort of license plate version for $12 or so.

Edit: to clarify, that was my Maryland ezpass account
