VDOT ANNOUNCES LATEST ‘E-ZPASS ON-THE-GO’ RETAILER
Farm Fresh joins Virginia’s ‘E-ZPass On-the-Go’ retail program

RICHMOND, Va. – The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) today announced Farm Fresh has joined its E-ZPass On-the-Go retail program. Drivers can now get prepaid E-ZPass transponders at Farm Fresh for use on all toll roads in Virginia and 15 other states.

“E-ZPass On-the-Go is one of the most convenient ways to get a Virginia E-ZPass transponder,” said Deputy Secretary of Transportation Grindly Johnson. “Farm Fresh is the first grocery store in Hampton Roads to join our E-ZPass On-the-Go program. I’m thrilled to welcome Farm Fresh to our roster of businesses and retailers making it easier for Virginia residents to take advantage of the benefits associated with E-ZPass. ”

With E-ZPass On-the-Go, drivers can obtain a pre-paid E-ZPass transponder for $35 at participating retailers. The E-ZPass transponder can be used immediately with a $15 toll credit. The remaining $20 will become available for tolls when the transponder is registered online, by phone or at an E-ZPass Customer Service Center or DMV location.

“Many people are looking for more time in the day to spend with family or tackle everyday needs such as grocery shopping. This is why Farm Fresh is happy to work with the Virginia Department of Transportation to make it easier to travel across Hampton Roads by making E-ZPass transponders available at all 39 Farm Fresh stores in Virginia,” said Farm Fresh Hampton Roads President Micky Nye.

E-ZPass is accepted in 16 states including Virginia. In Hampton Roads, E-ZPass can be used at the Downtown Tunnel, Midtown Tunnel, South Norfolk Jordan Bridge, Chesapeake Expressway, Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel, Coleman Bridge and Dominion Boulevard Veterans Bridge.

E-ZPass transponders can be obtained online at EZPassVa.com, by phone at 877-762-7824, in person at E-ZPass Customer Service Centers, at select DMV locations and at E-ZPass On-the-Go retailers. For more information, visit EZPassVa.com.
