People “Line Up” for Free MassDOT Transponders in Advance of AET Conversion

WAMC News reports, “In advance of the changeover in late October to all-electronic tolling on the Massachusetts Turnpike, officials are distributing free transponders that motorists will need to avoid paying higher rates to travel on the highway.”

WWLP News reports, “MASSDOT was giving away free transponders at the Clodo Concepcion center in Springfield [on August 31]. ‘I thought it was important to have the folks from MASSDOT come to western Massachusetts, to provide the information, education and free transponders needed in order to get people up and ready for this major change,’ explains State Representative Jose Tosado.”
