Plan Descriptions

Private Account

Private accounts are limited to customers who request four (4) or fewer transponders. New and replacement transponders are subject to a nonrefundable transponder fee. This fee may decrease/increase without notice based on pricing set by the transponder manufacturer. Accounts without a Maryland address are charged a $1.50 monthly account maintenance fee. The maintenance fee will be waived if the Account uses Maryland toll facilities at least three times in the previous statement period.

Standard Plan (STANDARD)

Discount Plans — How They Work
If you have a Standard Plan, you are also eligible to enroll in the E-ZPass Maryland discount plans listed here, which allow frequent commuters discount rates at selected facilities. ALL two-axle discount plans are transponder specific. Plans CANNOT be shared between transponders. If more than one discount plan is selected for a transponder, the lowest applicable toll rate for a facility will be posted to your account.

Plan cycles begin when first used and end after 45* days or when all trips are used, whichever comes first. The account is charged the discounted toll rate when each trip is recorded using the transponder. All unused trips are charged to your account at the end of the plan period. Unused trips in a Discount Plan ARE NOT refundable.

*William Preston Lane, Jr. Memorial (Bay) Bridge Shoppers Discount Plan is valid for 90 days. Plan cycles do not apply to the Thomas J. Hatem Memorial Bridge Discount Plans.

FIVE OR MORE AXLE VEHICLES

Discount Plans
E-ZPass Maryland business account holders will be enrolled in the Post-Usage Discount Plan for vehicles with five (5) or more axles; and the Supplemental Rebate Plan for vehicles with five (5) or more axles. Discounts for both plans are credited to accounts thirty (30) days after completion of a cycle.

Post-Usage Plan (POSTUSG):
The Post-Usage Discount Plan is account specific and is based on all transponders used on the account at eligible facilities, for five (5) or more axle vehicles. After the plan is added to your account, the cycle begins on the date of the first toll transaction and runs for thirty (30) days thereafter (e.g. you open an account on 11/3/11 your five-axle vehicle uses an eligible facility on 11/6/11 it will run 12/6/11, 1/5/12, etc). Calculation of the post-usage discount is based on the following and does not include any applicable fees that may have been deducted from your account during the calculation period.

$150.00 to $1,999.99 of toll usage – 10 percent discount
$2,000.00 to 7,500.00 of toll usage – 15 percent discount
Over $7,500.00 of toll usage – 20 percent discount

Supplemental Rebate Plan
The Supplemental Rebate Plan is transponder specific and is based on the number of trips used by a single transponder at eligible facilities, for five (5) or more axle vehicles. The cycle begins when you open your account and runs to the corresponding day each subsequent month (e.g. you open an account on 11/3/11 it will run 12/3/11, 1/3/12, etc.). Because tolls are only collected in one direction at the John F. Kennedy Memorial Highway, Thomas J. Hatem Memorial Bridge, Governor Harry W. Nice Memorial Bridge and the William Preston Lane, Jr. Memorial (Bay) Bridge, one trip on these facilities will be counted as two trips.

60-79 trips per transponder – 10 percent discount
80-99 trips per transponder – 15 percent discount
100 or more trips per transponder – 20 percent discount

Eligible Facilities
The following Maryland toll facilities are eligible for the Post-Usage Discount Plan and the Supplemental Rebate Plan: Baltimore Harbor Tunnel, Fort McHenry Tunnel, Francis Scott Key Bridge, Governor Harry W. Nice Memorial Bridge, John F. Kennedy Memorial Highway, Thomas J. Hatem Memorial Bridge, and William Preston Lane, Jr. Memorial (Bay) Bridge.
