150K register for Turnpike EZ Pass

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — More than 150,000 customers registered for the EZ Pass program on the West Virginia Turnpike before the deadline last month, according to the Parkways Authority.

The body said Monday 110,000 new transponders were processed for the three-year pass, adding to the 40,000 customers already with transponders.

The Parkways Authority added revenues on the Turnpike has increased by almost 79 percent since the new toll schedule took effect on Jan. 15; tolls doubled for passenger vehicles and also increased for commercial vehicles in order to cover costs of highway construction in 10 southern counties.

Motorists who did not take part in the program can still purchase a $25 pass for one year of unlimited use of the Turnpike.
