Tolling Reminder:  All-electronic tolling is statewide in Maryland. Standard Video Toll rates apply for any trips not paid with a valid E-ZPass or Pay-By-Plate account at toll facilities. E-ZPass remains the most cost-effective way to travel toll roads in Maryland, saving drivers up to 77% versus the higher rates and additional paperwork that come with Video Tolls. Always properly mount your E-ZPass transponder and be sure your vehicles and billing information are up to date to receive the lowest toll rate for your account. Enroll in E-ZPass or Pay-By-Plate at DriveEzMD.com.
