ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland officials are ending the $7.50 E-ZPass transponder fee for new customers, offering a little relief to drivers facing soaring prices at the gas pump.
Gov. Larry Hogan made the announcement Wednesday. He says it will save Maryland residents about $46 million over the next five years.
Customers who use an E-ZPass save 25 percent or more on Maryland tolls. At the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, the savings increases to 37.5 percent, with E-ZPass customers paying $2.50, compared to $4 for a driver using cash.
