Rochester, N.Y. (WHAM) - The New York State Thruway Authority announced Thursday that new E-ZPass customers will receive a discount.

It's part of the E-ZPass Education Campaign.

As part of this special incentive program, drivers who buy a Thruway E-ZPass On-The-Go tag and register it from Thursday Feb. 1 through Monday, Feb. 26 will be eligible for the account credit.

After the customer takes 10 trips on the New York State Thruway in six months, they will receive the $10 credit on their account.

E-ZPass On-The-Go tags are available for $25. Customers can register the tag online or by calling 1-800-697-1554. The $25 is credited to the customer’s account and the tag becomes active in 24 hours.

E-ZPass is accepted along the entire 570-mile Thruway system and at cashless tolling locations at the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge, MTA Bridges and Tunnels in New York City and the Port Authority’s Bayonne Bridge, and, starting in Spring 2018, at the Grand Island Bridges in Western New York.

Sales of On-The-Go tags jumped 22 percent in 2017 from 2016, setting a new record of 131,175 tags sold, according to the Thruway Authority.
