I-PASS 101

Save Money. Make Sure Your Vehicle Has a Transponder.

The Tollway encourages I-PASS users to have a transponder in their vehicles in order to receive the 50 percent discount on tolls.

Transponders can be shared between cars and motorcycles registered to the same I-PASS account, but the transponder must be properly mounted in your vehicle whenever you drive on the Tollway.

Convenient for families and businesses, I-PASS Shared Balance allows all transponders to draw from the same, single prepaid account balance.

Be safe and put a transponder in your vehicle. No transponder, no discount.

The Move Over Law requires drivers to slow down and move over a lane for any emergency vehicle or passenger vehicle with flashing lights. This protects firefighters, police officers, maintenance workers on the job. If found guilty of an offense, you can be fined a minimum of $100 and a maximum of $10,000.

Slow Down. Move Over. Save Lives.
