CBBT Commuter Discount Class – 30 one-way trips/30 days
A commuter is someone who travels back and forth over a particular route, often between a suburb and a city. And while some must endure a daily commute that involves sitting in bumper to bumper traffic, there are others who can enjoy the beautiful and ever-changing views of the Chesapeake Bay as they traverse the CBBT. However, it comes with a price-tag.
So, in 2014, the 30/30 Commuter Discount class was introduced. This $6 one-way toll rate is available to travelers who make 30 one-way trips across the CBBT within a 30-day period, utilizing the same E-ZPass transponder for all 30 trips.
Here’s how it works:
- The customer must make 30 one-way trips across the CBBT within the last 720 hours, which equals 30 days.
- To qualify for this discount, the crossing must be made in a 2-axle Class 1 passenger vehicle.
- The customer must use the SAME E-ZPass transponder for all 30 or more one-way trips.
- The E-ZPass system does a computerized “look back” at the customer’s history of trips across the CBBT from the last 720 hours to determine if the customer qualifies for the discounted rate.
- If the customer has made 29 or more trips during the 30-day “look back” period, the one-way toll of $6 is charged, beginning with the 30th trip.
- Additionally, crossings made with a Class 2, Class 3 or Class 4 vehicle will be included in the trip count, but the 30/30 discount does not apply to these classes of vehicles.
- The discount is calculated by the usage of an individual TRANSPONDER, NOT an E-ZPass account.
- The discounted toll rate of $6 is NOT retroactive.
- The discounted toll rate will NOT apply until such time that the transponder reflects 30 or more trips within the past 720 hours, or 30 days.
- If a user breaks the cycle of 30 one-way trips, the toll charge will return to the normal toll rate less any applicable discount until the threshold is met again.
- It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that there are sufficient funds in their E-ZPass account at all times. Insufficient funds will result in non-acceptance of E-ZPass, thus resulting in a “lost trip” on the commuter account history.
Those travelers who make less frequent trips can also enjoy a discount if they make a roundtrip crossing within 24-hours. E-ZPass is once again required.
