E-ZPass holders will no longer need to pre-pay or use a credit card.

E-ZPass payments are becoming even easier.

Drivers will no longer need to link their E-ZPasses to a credit card or maintain a minimum balance. Instead, they can deduct tolls from a bank account and pay the same day that an electronic pass is used, the MTA announced Tuesday.

“We believe this is a feature customers will welcome,” said Bridges and Tunnels President Jim Ferrara. “We listened to customers who were reluctant to use E-ZPass because they don’t like pre-paying for tolls and the result is MTA’s new Pay Per Trip.”

Though this new E-ZPass method doesn’t require a backup payment source, individuals without one must pay a $10 tag deposit fee.

This new payment method comes just two months before tolls increases take effect.

E-ZPass holders already pay less than those who use cash tolls, but when the cost to use MTA bridge and tunnels goes up in March, those savings will increase to $2.17 per trip at most crossings, according to the transportation agency.

For more information, call the New York E-ZPass Service Center toll free at 1-800 333-8655 or visit the Bridges and Tunnels homepage. To view frequently asked questions about Pay Per Trip click here.
