Starting in October, drivers on the Massachusetts Turnpike will need to have a transponder that is compatible with the E-ZPass system to avoid paying an extra surcharge for their toll. Bestpass works for all E-ZPass facilities.

The MassDOT is eliminating manned toll boths and launching an electronic system, "Open Road Tolling," that will read E-ZPass transponders while vehicles are moving at regular highway speeds. If the vehicle does not have an active transponder in place, the system will take a photo of the vehicle's license plate, add a to-be-determined surcharge, and send a bill in the mail.

The Tappan Zee Bridge in New York is also switching to cashless tolls starting in April and will read Bestpass transponders.
