Changes coming for I-PASS

By  | 

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. (WIFR) - The Illinois Tollway is now warning drivers, get an I-PASS transponder or pay up.

Starting next year I-PASS discounts will only be applied to account holders who have a transponder in the car they're driving, even if their license plate is registered to an I-PASS account.

The Illinois Tollway currently uses video to match license plates to I-PASS accounts when we don't use a transponder. The agency says they're now doing away with that because it wastes time and money.
