E-ZPASS ON-THE-GO COMING TO PALISADES CENTER MALL
Travelers Can Purchase Tags for $25
E-ZPass tags will be available for purchase at the Palisades Center Mall in West Nyack on Saturday, March 29, and Sunday, April 6, as part of the New York State Thruway Authority’s E-ZPass On-the-Go mobile sales program.
Customers will be able to purchase E-Z Pass tags on March 29, between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m., near the customer service desk, which is located on the first floor of the Palisades Center Mall. Customers can also purchase tags on April 6, between noon to 4 p.m., near the food court on the third floor.
E-ZPass users avoid delays when traveling through toll plazas, receive a discount on every Thruway toll they pay, and enjoy the convenience of using E-ZPass in 15 states from Maine to North Carolina and New Jersey to Illinois.
“E-ZPass is the fastest, most convenient way for motorists to pay tolls, and E-ZPass On-the-Go is the fastest, most convenient way for motorists to purchase tags,” said Thruway Authority Executive Director Thomas P. Madison. “Every time E-ZPass customers pay a toll along the Thruway, they receive a discount.”
The prepackaged E-ZPass tags can be purchased for $25, with the full $25 purchase price applied to tolls once the tag is registered. Customers can register tags either online or by phone. E-ZPass provides a 5-percent savings on Thruway tolls and offers toll discounts on many other roadways.
The E-ZPass system has been in place on the Thruway for more than 20 years and has saved Thruway motorists more than $177 million in toll discounts. E-ZPass is now accepted in Delaware; Illinois; Indiana; Maine; Maryland; Massachusetts; New Hampshire; New Jersey; New York; North Carolina; Ohio; Pennsylvania; Rhode Island; Virginia and West Virginia.
