Please note: E-ZPass is not guaranteed to work on motorcycles. If you ride a motorcycle on the Chesapeake Expressway, CASH tolls are $1.00. The Electronic Toll Collection System does not differentiate between motorcycles and cars. Therefore, if you have an E-ZPass registered to a motorcycle you will be charged the $3.00 Regular Toll and $6.00 for the Peak Weekends.
How do I maintain my Discount Program membership?
It's easy! After the initial 6-month membership period, monthly fees will be automatically deducted from your prepaid Virginia E-ZPass account. If for any reason a Member's E-ZPass account balance is insufficient to pay Discount Program fees, the Member will be removed from the Discount Program and re-enrollment in the program by the Member will require pre-payment of the six-month fee.
Can I have more than one E-ZPass in my Discount Program account?
Yes, membership fees are charged per Virginia E-ZPass enrolled in the Discount Program.
What if I move or get a new car?
Please notify both the E-ZPass Customer Service Center and the Chesapeake Expressway. Both your E-ZPass Account and Chesapeake Expressway Discount Program will need to be updated.
*Note: Member agrees to use the E-ZPass transponder only on a vehicle with the number of axles identified on the application form. If the transponder is used on a vehicle with a higher number of axles than listed on the application, the Member will be charged the full non-discounted toll for the axle count recorded.
As a Discount Program member, what if my E-ZPass is replaced or I wish to add another E-ZPass?
You must enroll the new Virginia E-ZPass in the Chesapeake Expressway Discount Program.
