MnDOT moving to E-Z Pass toll-paying system in August
July 16, 2021
The Minnesota Department of Transportation is ditching MnPass and switching to an electronic toll collection system used in 18 other states.
The change, which MnDOT officials have been preparing for since 2015, will allow drivers to use one device to pay tolls in Minnesota and elsewhere, satisfying customer demand and bringing the state in line with others including Illinois, Indiana, Florida and several states on the East Coast and in the Northeast.
"This will make travel easier for folks," said MnDOT Commissioner Margaret Anderson Kelliher at a news conference Thursday. "This will add a lot of value for folks."
