MTA Cash Reload Card A Hit With Savvy Drivers

MTA Bridges and Tunnels' Cash Reload Card is a hit with motorists who have used it nearly 25,000 times since last year to replenish their E-ZPass accounts at retail stores throughout the region.

The card was introduced in February 2012 to attract new customers who wanted a more convenient way to use cash to pay E-ZPass tolls. While E-ZPass customers have always had the option of adding cash to their accounts, doing so previously required a trip to an E-ZPass walk-in center.
