I know NC has no tolls but the other states do. I'm sure I'll be traveling from NC back to NJ for visits. Is there an Ez pass anyway? Do I have to give up my NJ ez pass?

There is no EZ Pass in NC, but I would recommend keeping yours if you'll be occasionally returning to NJ.

Just keep the NJ ezpass. You can update your EZ pass account with your new NC address and Lic Plate #. I moved to NC two years ago and still use my EZ pass when I drive up I-95 to NJ. Never had a problem.

Ya EZpass doesn't really go by states, that is only for when you are using it for discounts on local travels. You just update your address, lic plate number and bank account so that they can get their money and in case someone steals your ezpass they can check the plates.

NC doesn't have EZ pass. However, when we moved from NJ we kept our EZ Pass accounts and simply updated the addresses. This way whenever we drive up through Virginia and further north we can use it. I think EZ pass only goes to Northern Virginia and then stops. In any case, it's $1 a month to keep the EZ Pass account, but we don't use it to save money so much as save TIME going through the northern tolls.

Keep yours just update the license plate and billing address. That's what we did. Make sure you update the license plates and it should be no problem.

Default Any E-ZPass Anywhere

There is no North Carolina EZPass. You can keep your existing NJ EZpass, just update your address and plate online. You can get/keep a tag from any EZPass agency and use it on any EZPass toll road, bridge or tunnel.

For anyone that doesn't already have EZPass, you should order it from a state/toll authority that dosen't charge up-front for the tag, and dosen't have a monthly service fee. Some good choices are: The Maryland DOT, The Delaware River and Bay Authority (they control the Delaware Memorial Bridge), or The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission.

The only reason to order your E-ZPass from your "home" agency is to benifit from discounts offered by that agency for frequent use of its facilities.

Excellent. I was afraid to tell them I moved out of state for fear they would snatch back their ez-pass. Thanks.

I just got a letter from Virginia that my Smart Tag/Easy Pass was deactivated. I still have $35 bucks on there. I guess I should just mail mine and my wife's back in and get our money back?

The Virginia DOT is strange among the agencies on the E-ZPass network in that they don't want non-residents to have Virgina transponders. I don't know why they do this. It was my understanding that under E-ZPass policy, member agencies were not supposed to put residency restrictions on their programs. If I were you I would mail the transponders back to VDOT and ask them to refund whatever is left in the account.

If you still want to have E-ZPass for your cars, just open a new account with the Maryland DOT.
