Free E-ZPass Transponders for Maryland Residents
If you live in Maryland or travel in Maryland, your vehicle needs to have an E-ZPass transponder for the toll roads. Governor Larry Hogan announced that all new E-ZPass Maryland customers will not have to pay the $7.50 transponder fee, which is estimated to save Marylanders $46 million over the next five years. The decision follows a 2015 announcement when Hogan said there would be major toll rollbacks.
The free transponders themselves will save $6 million, while the discounts that transponder users get will account for the remaining $40 million in estimated savings.
