The Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel began accepting E-ZPass on November 1, 2007. 

While all lanes are equipped to accept E-ZPass, the far left lanes, both northbound and southbound, are dedicated as E-ZPass lanes only for cars and pickup trucks.  ALL LANES ARE GATED AND CUSTOMERS MUST SLOW DOWN TO A MINIMAL SPEED BEFORE PASSING THROUGH THE TOLL LANES.  For more information on the importance of these gated lanes at the CBBT, please click here

E-ZPass is an electronic toll collection system that automatically deducts tolls from your prepaid account. It's the easiest way to use toll roads in Virginia and 14 other states.

Customers may open a prepaid account using electronic debit of their checking account or credit card.  A small electronic transponder is then attached to the inside windshield of the vehicle or to the license plate.  Tolls are automatically deducted from the prepaid account when the customer passes through a toll facility that accepts
