Renting a Vehicle

What you should do before driving a rental vehicle on Massachusetts toll roads.

If you have an E-ZPass MA Account:

You may temporarily add the rental vehicle’s license plate number to your account.

  • Login to your E-ZPass MA account.
  • Add the rented vehicle’s information.
  • Check the box “Is this a leased or rented vehicle”.
  • Add a start and end date for your rental period.
  • If you do not know the end date. When you return the vehicle, please remember to immediately remove it from your account. This will prevent further charges posting to your account.
  • Mount your E-ZPass MA transponder in the rented vehicle.
  • Don’t forget to take your transponder when you return the rented vehicle.

If you drive a rental vehicle on Massachusetts toll roads without temporarily adding the license plate number to your E-ZPass MA account; it could result in tolls and extra service fees billed through the rental company.

If you do not have an E-ZPass MA account:

  • It is recommended that you ask the rental car company how they process tolls and fees.
  • Many rental car companies offer ways to pay tolls and have them charged through your rental agreement.
  • Some rental companies will offer PlatePass Toll Road Payment.
  • If you have an E-ZPass that was issued in another state, please check with the issuing agency.
