It is normal to get a toll transponder from the most prominent agency in any given state; however, how you travel can influence whether you get a different transponder, or even more than one.
Families and businesses will often have more than one vehicle. This usually means there is more than one transponder/pass on an account.
Most agencies allow more than one transponder to be assigned to an account, often up to five per family, and more for businesses. However, only one transponder or sticker ID can be assigned to any one vehicle at any given time.
When you order a pass, you will be required to set up a toll pass account with the state or regional agency that issues the transponder or sticker. This is how you will manage your transponders, your vehicles and add funds to your new toll passes.
When you get your pass, you will need to associate the identification number on the transponder or sticker with the vehicle you are using.
Proper installation of your new sticker or transponder is vital to assuring the device can be read by tolling equipment.
