That is great news for seniors but the problem is the state needs that money to maintain the roads. They already claim to be losing money maintaining them. Where will it come from?

Hi Eric,  Thanks for the question and your concern.  This is already something in place.  I would hope the Delaware River Port Authority had weighed the sides before offering this program to Seniors.  The way I understand where the money goes from E-Z Pass collections is into the pot for "paid" roads and bridges.  And if the DRPA is having difficulties, then by all means they should drop this program.  But until that time, this is a way for Seniors on a fixed income to save some money.   Sincerely, Gloria

Mike, we have an E-Z Pass and it is great when you are traveling at peak times.  Going to the shore, now that sounds really wonderful right now!

Correct me if I am wrong but I believe this senior citizen discount only applies to the Port Authority bridges over the Delaware,

Hi Adib, Thank you for stopping and pointing this out to me.  I called to check on this and you are correct.  So I will make a note of this in my post.  Still a great savings for those people using the bridges.

In appreciation,
Gloria

Does this apply if one already has a PA EZ Pass? The way I read it, it only applies if the EZ Pass account is a NJ account.

Hi Steve, How I understand it and it was pointed out by Adib, is anyone with an E-Z Pass who uses the bridges over the Delaware River and is 65 or older will get this discount.  Check with E-Z Pass for further clarity.  The number and a link is above.

Thanks for stopping by.

Theory,  If you do everything on line there is no monthly fee.  Initally, you are required to establish an account with money in it for your usage ($25?).  Then with toll usage it gets reduced.  When it goes down to around $10 EZ Pass needs to replenish your account, via your credit card or check or cash payment.  Here is a link to check it out some more  - EZ PASS Delaware

Thanks for stopping by.

What happens if you forget and use it and you are not quite 65 yet.  My husband has it on his car and I had to borrow his car for a week, because my car was at the garage being fixed.  I forgot and just went through the EZ-Pass.
