Turnpike waives E-ZPass maintenance fee for some travelers

Posted: Updated:

Some drivers on the Ohio Turnpike will no longer have to pay a monthly maintenance fee.  Turnpike leaders say that beginning January 1, 2014, E-ZPass customers who use the toll road at least 30 times a month will not have to pay the $0.75 fee.

In a release, Turnpike Executive Director Rick Hodges says he hopes the move will encourage people who don't use E-ZPass to take advantage of the program.  He says, "Perhaps it's worth a few extra trips on the Turnpike."

Turnpike leaders say 44% of passenger car customers who travel the toll road use E-ZPass.
