How much will your new Mass. Pike toll be?

Massachusetts is making the shift to an all-electronic tolling system that will end the need for drivers to stop, or even slow down, to pay tolls.

Massachusetts is making the shift to an all-electronic tolling system that will end the need for drivers to stop, or even slow down, to pay tolls.

Come Oct. 28, some drivers could pay more — while some could pay less — when all-electronic tolling is activated in Massachusetts, according to a proposal unveiled Monday.

The new prices come as the state shifts to an all-electronic tolling system that will end the need for drivers to stop, or even slow down, to pay tolls.

Under the new system, a trip from one end of the state to the other on the Massachusetts Turnpike (not counting any bridge or tunnel tolls) would cost $6.15 with a Massachusetts-issued E-ZPass; $7.80 with an E-ZPass issued by another state, like New York or New Hampshire; or $11.70 if the driver has no transponder at all.

Here’s a closer look at the new rates:

Toll rates under new all-electronic system
To determine how much a trip will cost, add up the rates shown below for each gantry you would drive through. Drivers without a transponder will also pay a 60-cent charge per bill. Drivers on Tobin Bridge and in the Boston tunnels will now be billed the below rates no matter which direction they are headed. All rates here are for standard, 2-axle passenger cars.
