I need to purchase an EZPass for my JFK rental car. Is there a shop in the airport that sells these? I understand rental companies sell it as a service, but I would like to have my own pass.

  • Hold on. Are you sure you need to buy an EZ Pass? Most rental agencies offer EZ Pass as an option.

  • @Johns-305 He says "I understand rental companies sell it as a service, but I would like to have my own pass." Might actually be cheaper, if he's going to be doing this a lot.

  • The rental agencies charge a hefty fee for using theirs (often a per-day fee that might apply on days you don't even use the thing as long as you've used it once). Getting your own could work out in your favor even with the deposit, depending on how much you plan to pay in tolls, but you'd have to do the math for your trip to find out. Jan 25, 2017 at 22:24
  • @Andy Yes, I know. OP edited the question after I posted my comment.

It looks like there are lots of retails stores where you can get EZ Pass On-The-Go. https://www.e-zpassny.com/en/onthego/locations.shtml. If one of those retailers (7-11, etc.) are in the airport they may have them there. Unfortunately I don't have any first-hand knowledge of being able to obtain one at the airport.

Otherwise, it appears that you can get them an MTA cash lanes at some bridges and tunnels as well. So if you're going through / over one of those, skip EZpass at the rental agency, and ask for one in the cash lane.
