Thank you! Similar to sentiments above, I do not typically use the turnpike in Ohio. Our oldest is heading to college (gulp!) next year in that direction, so we may use it? Typically we travel West Virginia via SE Ohio for trips to HHI, soccer tournaments, and sometimes Florida. Would love to be able to drive right through. We may be heading to PA (who thinks very highly of their tollways as I recall the prices for pay by mail last year ) quite a bit this summer on college visits for number two (double gulp!). Other than that, it is purely for our Disney addiction. We used to have a Sunpass, and Iím glad there is some multi-state options now.

I bought the E-Pass Uni but then after speaking with others here, found that sunpass allows you to designate an expiration for a rental car plate, which I found invaluable compared to the E-Pass setup. So I bought a Sunpass PRO as well.

This is why I love the Sunpass. My state is horrible with fees and I can almost always avoid the Ohio turnpike. So sunpass pro for the win for me.

- MA doesnít have any monthly or annual fees
- MA doesnít charge to set up the account
- MA makes it easy to use your pass with a rental car

Other states are worse on one or more of these points. You also will want a suction-cup mount, and I like this one:

Yep - we lived in MA when we got ours. Moved to WI 7 years ago, ordered devices from IL, but never actually switched over to using them. Simply kept on using our transponders from MA, as it remained simple to manage.
