  1. Curiously, the Oklahoma PikePass system gives you a discount if you use the electronic gizmo: for instance, the $3.50 Tulsa-to-Oklahoma City toll on the Turner is cut to $3.35, and you get a volume discount (5 percent or so) if you have at least 20 transactions a month. Then again, the PikePass isn’t integrated with E-ZPass or anybody else’s system.

  2. I think the point of the research cited is that tolls start rising over time, and at a faster clip than if the electronic system weren’t in place. I don’t know if E-ZPass offers a discount incentive; I do know they give a 10 percent discount for hybrid car owners.

  3. I noticed that, but it’s been $3.50 from here to Tulsa or back for years now: our tolls just aren’t rising fast enough to suit East Coast tastes.

    Around here, they could probably let the hybrids on for free: they’d be giving up maybe ten bucks a year in revenue.
