Pause for Progress

In order to bring DriveEzMD online for Marylanders this spring, all our customer service operations must pause for progress. That means from Tuesday, April 20, through Wednesday, April 28, tolling is still in effect, but tolling customer services will be temporarily unavailable:

To help prepare for the downtime, the MDTA is asking all customers to pay any outstanding Notices of Toll Due (NOTDs), register any new On the Go transponders and perform any necessary account maintenance by Monday, April 19.

Current E-ZPass customers who replenish their accounts automatically using a credit card should make sure that their payment information is up to date on or before April 19. Customers who normally replenish their accounts by cash or check should ensure their E-ZPass account has enough funds on April 19 to cover any tolls that will be incurred before April 29. This is critical because toll collections will continue. Trips that are made during the downtime will be queued and will post to accounts in the first few weeks of the new system’s launch on April 29.

Check out our FAQs below for additional details.

On Thursday, April 29, DriveEzMD is live: Customer Service Centers reopen, DriveEzMD.com is online and 1-888-321-6824 is available with more than triple the number of service reps!

As with any new technology, we expect there will be some bumps along the road when we go live. So please bear with us. Your feedback during our initial weeks of operation is not only welcomed, but is critically important.

What’s To Come?

All-Electronic (cashless) Tolling is statewide. You may have already experienced cashless tolling while driving MDTA roads. Maryland drivers can pay tolls with E-ZPass and Video Tolling. When DriveEzMD launches on April 29, so will something new called Pay-By-Plate!

Pay-By-Plate is a hassle-free way to pay for Maryland tolls. With Pay-By-Plate, tolls are automatically billed to your registered credit card as you use our facilities, with no need for a transponder.

When DriveEzMD.com launches on April 29, you’ll be able to learn more about all the ways to use Maryland toll facilities, including:

  • E-ZPass
  • Pay-By-Plate
  • Video Tolling

FAQs

We know you may have questions about the temporary service downtime between April 20 – 28. Please click any link below to learn more.

How can I pay my Notice of Toll Due (NOTD)?

Prior to April 20, please visit ezpassmd.com, stop by one of our Customer Service Centers (locations listed here) or call 1-888-321-6824 to pay your Video Tolls. The MDTA has taken steps to ensure that no NOTDs have a final due date between April 20 – 28 when customer services are temporarily unavailable.

Once DriveEzMD goes live on April 29, all Customer Service Centers will reopen to the public with existing COVID-19 protocols, the DriveEzMD.com website will be prepared to process NOTD payments and the toll-free 1-888-321-6824 service line will be fully staffed with customer service representatives ready to welcome you to the next generation of tolling. The ezpassmd.com website will no longer be functional and will redirect customers to DriveEzMD.com.

If customer service operations are temporarily unavailable, are we still getting tolled?

Yes, tolling is still in effect. Customers remain responsible for paying their tolls for use of MDTA facilities. All MDTA projects and services are funded through tolls paid by customers like you who use our toll facilities. In fact, the MDTA does not receive tax funding from the Maryland General Fund nor the Transportation Trust Fund.

Are you one of our 1.4 million valued E-ZPass customers? We encourage you to replenish your E-ZPass account before April 20. Ensuring a positive E-ZPass account balance is critical because trips made during the pause in service operations will be queued and will post to accounts following DriveEzMD’s launch on April 29. You will be billed in phases beginning two weeks after go-live.

What if I plan to use my E-ZPass during the April 20-28 downtime?

While customer service operations will be down, tolling will still be in effect and customers remain responsible for paying their tolls for use of MDTA facilities. Trips that are made during the April 20-28 downtime will be queued and will post to E-ZPass accounts in the first few weeks following the DriveEzMD launch on April 29.

Since the first announcement of DriveEzMD in March, the MDTA has urged E-ZPass customers to replenish their accounts and ensure a positive balance by April 19. Learn more by reading MDTA's March 31 press release.

Is my current E-ZPass transponder compatible with the new system?
