Default EZ-Pass for West Coast

On the east coast pretty much all of the mid-atlantic states toll roads are on EZ Pass electronic toll payment. Is there anything like that in the Seattle area? Do they have any toll roads in that area?

There aren't really toll roads in the Seattle area. They are going to start tolling the 520 bridge from the eastside into Seattle, and perhaps they'll set up something like EZ Pass when that happens.

We don't really do toll roads/bridge ( I can only think of one right now... that's the Narrows Bridge and that's all the way past Tacoma). They were supposed to start tolling 520 now, but the glitches delayed it til December.

We have the good2go system. WSDOT - Good To Go!

There is the 67 through Renton, but it's optional. It's tolled only in the express lane, so people can pay to go faster when traffic is heavy. That is about the only non-bridge toll we have here and you don't have to pay if you stay in the right lanes. We bought 3 good to go stickers for our cars to go on 520 back about April, and they have yet to start using it. The state is losing a lot of money by the delays in tolling, due to the contractor incompetence.

Like other posted before, we only have a few bridges that are tolled. I don't believe there are any totally toll roads in the western US. I think the most western toll highway is in Oklahoma but I'd like to be corrected on that if it's not true.

There are some in Southern Orange County, California. Also the beltway in Denver.

Yes, there are, I think, 4 here in Orange County, the 73, the 261, the 241 and the 133.
