Using E-ZPass

By connecting your program application to your registered Virginia E-ZPass, VDOT can quickly and efficiently ensure that your trips are counted towards the program and that you are receiving your rebates and discounts accurately.

This also means that your E-ZPass must be properly mounted in your vehicle. Tolls invoiced to your license plate will not be eligible for the Toll Relief Program.

E-ZPass Facts

  1. Open an account with an initial deposit of $20, all of which is available for the payment of tolls.
  2. There are no additional costs or processing fees to start or maintain your E-ZPass account.
  3. You can add funds to your E-ZPass by purchasing an E-ZPass Reload Card, online or at any E-ZPass Customer Service Center.
  4. If an E-ZPass runs out of funds and an invoice is mailed, you’re responsible for paying the invoice separately. Adding more funds to your E-ZPass will not pay the invoice.
  5. Using E-ZPass saves you up to 66 percent at the Downtown and Midtown tunnels – helping your Toll Relief discount go further!

E-ZPass Reload Card

Now you can cash replenish at participating Virginia retailers, too, with the E-ZPass Reload Card.

The Reload Card is a wallet-size re-useable card that can be linked to your Virginia E-ZPass account.

You can use it to manually replenish your account with cash at any participating retailer.
