I called the number on my E-ZPass but it's disconnected. How do I reach E-ZPass now?
If you have an E-ZPass issued by DRPA from before July 2004, then the phone number printed on your E-ZPass is no longer in service. In July 2004, DRPA joined the New Jersey E-ZPass group. Customers should now call 888-AUTOTOL or 1-888-288-6865 or visit www.ezpassnj.com.
What happens if I go through an E-ZPass lane by mistake?
You do not need to call DRPA if you go through an E-ZPass lane by mistake at one of DRPA's four bridges. The system is automated and cannot be interrupted. Cameras in the toll lanes automatically take pictures of vehicles that pass through E-ZPass lane without an E-ZPass. The vehicle's license plate is run through our database of existing E-ZPass customers. If there is a match, the correct toll will be deducted from the customer's E-ZPass account. If there is no match, the information is sent to the state's DMV to obtain the vehicle owner's name and address. The owner is then sent a Violation Notice requesting payment of toll plus an administrative fee. If this is your first time, we will waive the administrative fee if toll payment is made promptly.
