Using Your I-PASS on Other Toll Roads
Illinois Tollway customers can enjoy the benefits of I-PASS when traveling beyond Illinois. Use I-PASS anywhere E-ZPass is accepted.* Vehicles (including their trailers) that exceed four tires and two axles, and that are traveling on E-ZPass roads, must exchange their I-PASS transponder for the compatible E-ZPass "blue" transponder available at every Tollway Customer Service Center and at select Road Ranger outlets.
*I-PASS is not accepted at airport parking lots nor any other non-roadway facilities that accept E-ZPass.
I-PASS and E-ZPass
I-PASS and E-ZPass can be used interchangeably and are accepted in 15 states by 26 toll agencies. Rates and discounts are set by individual facilities. Please visit their websites through the E-ZPass facilities page for specific information.

Keep in mind that toll rates on the E-ZPass system tend to be higher than those on the Illinois Tollway. Please ensure that you have sufficient funds in your account a minimum of 48 hours prior to traveling out of state, and remember to check your balance frequently. If you use automatic balance replenishment to add funds to your I-PASS account balance, make sure your credit/debit card information, including the expiration date, is accurate. Refer to the Customer Service Chart for ways to check your balance and replenish your account.
I-PASS users do not need to register with E-ZPass, and E-ZPass users do not need to register with I-PASS in order to use the other system. As always, make sure the transponder is properly mounted and your account information is current. Keep in mind it may take up to 48 hours for out-of-state roadways to update your I-PASS account.
*The Indiana Toll Road Concession Company - the private company that operates the Indiana Toll Road and the Skyway - passes on a 3-cent-per-transaction fee to all I-PASS customers using the Indiana Toll Road and Chicago Skyway.
*The Indiana Toll Road Concession Company is also charging I-PASS customers $1.00 surcharge for improperly mounted transponders. The surcharge will be added to the standard toll charge on your account statement.
