SANDY POINT With all-electronic (cashless) tolling coming to the Bay Bridge this summer, the Maryland Transportation Authoritys E-ZPass Maryland Outreach Team is hosting events to provide free E-ZPass transponders and sign up new customers.

Customers can learn more about all-electronic tolling, what it means for motorists and its benefits and outreach four outreach events at the Queen Annes County Library in March. The first will take place from 3 to 6 p.m. March 3 at the Centreville library. Other sessions are set for 1 to 3 p.m. March 9 and 2 to 4 p.m. at the Kent Island branch, with the final session set for 10 a.m. to noon March 26 back at the Centreville branch.

With all-electronic tolling, cash is not accepted as payment. Drivers do not have to stop to pay tolls, as overhead gantries collect tolls electronically by E-ZPass or video tolling.

Commuters with an E-ZPass discount plan pay as little as $1.40 daily to cross the bridge, compared to $6 for video tolling. Transponders are free, and there is no monthly fee for Maryland residents.

Pre-loaded E-ZPass On the Go transponders are available at these events with a credit or debit card. Customers can use cash to open an account by visiting E-ZPass Maryland Customer Service Centers at MDTA toll facilities.

The benefits of all-electronic tolling include less idling time for better fuel efficiency and reduced vehicle emissions, decreased congestion, increased driver safety and a safer work environment for employees, according to MDTA.
