    I thought that was only prepass to bypass scales,not ezpass.Anyway even though companies pay for those transponders can you imagine what the east coast and Chicago makes every day.

    That's where I bought mines. I think the O Hare plaza is the name of it but I think it's the only plaza you can get one for commercial vehicles. It was much easier than getting EZ pass. Some of the road rangers sell them. The one in South Beloit, Hampshire and somewhere else I cant remember.

    It's a prepass plus when a prepass and ezpass are in the same transponder. I used to run Chicago all the time without one and finally got annoyed with stopping and going every couple of miles so I bought one.

    You can order I pass online. Took a few days to get it mailed. I have it set to fund off a credit card. Seems to work well. Illinois and Indiana so far. Have not tried it further east yet.

    too bad fla ks and co can't just use the same system as everyone else
    you can even use ezpass to park at the yankees and giants games
    i cant even imagine going back to carrying wads of cash like i did in the 80's
    and hoping the bills got paid if I found a mailbox
    now if I just get brave enough to get rid of my dumb phone
    when did I get old and hate change anyway

    Oklahoma needs it the worse. Especially with their cash only policy and $90 fine if you come up short
