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.

Bridges and Tunnels Introduces E-ZPass Pay Per Trip

MTA customers who don't like pre-paying for tolls, maintaining a minimum balance or supplying a credit card can now choose a new payment plan called E-ZPass Pay Per Trip where tolls are deducted from your bank account once the trip is taken using the Automated Clearing House (ACH) system.

"We believe this is a feature customers will welcome," said Bridges and Tunnels President Jim Ferrara. "We listened to customers who were reluctant to use E-ZPass because they don't like pre-paying for tolls and the result is MTA's new Pay Per Trip."
