Port Authority to use E-ZPass at LaGuardia

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has introduced the use of E-Z Pass-Plus at John F. Kennedy International Airport parking lots with plans to include LaGuardia and Newark Liberty airports soon.

The E-ZPass Plus is good for all non-toll charges and the $30 million Port Authority project is aimed at speeding motorists’ exit from parking areas.

“Programs like E-ZPass Plus ensure that business and leisure travelers enjoy improved transportation service,” said Gov. George Pataki. “These increased efficiencies will encourage travel and commerce, which in turn will serve to help rebuild our economy.”

The Port Authority said motorists would be able to use E-Zpass Plus for airport parking later this year at Newark Liberty International airport and LaGuardia airport.

Using E-ZPass Plus, drivers take parking tickets as usual when entering an airport parking lot. When ready to leave, the customers can use any lane with a purple E-Zpass-Plus sign overhead, insert the parking ticket into the electronic reader at the cashier booth and drive out when the gate goes up.

Account statements will list all parking charges and receipts are available at the cashier’s booth upon request.

Parking fees of less than $20 will be deducted from E-ZPass account balances, while charges of $20 or more will be charged directly to the credit cards used to establish the E-ZPass accounts.

E-ZPass account holders who replenish their accounts with a credit card are automatically enrolled in E-Zpass Plus.
