Press Release, Orleans County Clerk Nadine Hanlon

ALBION – Nadine P. Hanlon, Orleans County Clerk, is pleased to announce that the County Clerk’s Office and DMV are now authorized NYS Thruway E-ZPass On-the Go retail locations.

Drivers can purchase E-ZPass On-the-Go Tags for $25 for passenger vehicles at the County Clerk’s Office or at our DMV. Once purchased, the Tag must be registered with E-ZPass, either online or with a toll free customer service telephone number, before using it. The full $25 payment is moved to an EZ Pass account.

“The County Clerk’s Office is always looking for ways to provide beneficial services to our community,” Hanlon said. “We hope that by becoming a retail location it will be more convenient for people to purchase a tag especially by those who wish to travel using the NYS Thruway and/or are traveling through fifteen additional states that take EZ Pass.”

With the new cashless tolling on the NYS Thruway, tolls by mail customers will pay 30% above the NY E-ZPass toll rate, in addition to a $2 administrative surcharge per billing statement.

EZ Pass On-the-Go Tags also make the perfect gift, especially for that high school graduate who will be traveling back and forth to college.

It is important for E-ZPass customers to be aware that not having their E-ZPass properly mounted, will result in their tag not reading properly while traveling on the Thruway, and could be charged the tolls by mail toll rate.
