PAY PER TRIP with Standard Plan

PAY PER TRIP with Standard Plan: This is a "post-paid" plan that enables you to link your MTA E-ZPass account to your bank checking account and pay for all your E-ZPass tolls once per day, direct from your bank account, for the days on which you have E-ZPass toll usage. No money is held as "prepaid balance" like with the other E-ZPass plans, there is no need to provide a credit card number, and your account is not charged until you incur tolls (except in some circumstances on the night you sign up). If you optionally provide a backup credit card payment form you will not be required to maintain a deposit for each tag on your account, and the credit card will also serve as a secondary payment method if the bank account withdrawal fails for some reason. For more information see the PAY PER TRIP FAQ. Plan Code: (PPT)

New customers may use the PAY PER TRIP plan if they select the plan description "PAY PER TRIP with Standard Plan" during signup. Existing MTA customers may select the PAY PER TRIP plan if they are currently using cash or check or bank checking account for replenishment. If you are an existing MTA customer and using a Credit Card for replenishment please contact the NY E-ZPass service center on 1-800-333-8655 for assistance. If you are not an MTA customer but wish to use this plan, you must close your existing E-ZPass account and open a new one. You will also need to replace your Tags. PAY PER TRIP is not available to Business or Commercial customers.
