Pretty much how it works is you put in your checking account info (or credit card I think) and the Fast Lane takes out $20 everytime you pop under $10. You can read the fine print on the website HERE. I'll admit, when I first got it I was mad. How dare they CHARGE me for a device that makes them save money! Because that's essentially what they did - the more of these Passes that are out there, the less toll booth collectors they have to pay. But I have to admit, traveling to and fro on I-90 and the bridges in MA has been a lot less stressful thanks to that plastic contraption that hangs out on my windshield. Plus, I look wicked cool with it.
So if you don't have one and have been meaning to get one, click HERE to sign up! I'm not sure if they are always going to be free now or if it's just a promo peiod.
**Editted to say "Fast Lane" instead of "EZ Pass". I'm dumb sometimes and my friend Kara set me straight. Thanks Kara! You say potato, I say EZ Pass...** Oh, and there is a $2 a month service fee, but it's worth it to not sit in traffic!
