What is AET?

AET is All-Electronic Tolling, a booth-less, cashless tolling system that allows your vehicle to travel through a tolling area at the full speed limit.

All New Hampshire Toll Plazas are now operating as AET every night between 10 pm and 6 am.  Coming in the Fall of 2022, Dover and Rochester Toll Plazas will provide 24/7 AET, with no toll attendants available to take cash.

How does it work?

Payments are captured electronically via an E-ZPass transponder.

No cash is accepted at the toll plaza under AET.

Why AET?

AET improves air quality and safety, while reducing energy consumption. See how.

What does this mean to me

Currently, all Toll Plazas in New Hampshire are operating as AET between 10 pm and 6 am. During these hours, your toll payments can be made with:

  • a transponder – just sign up for E-ZPass!
  • by going online within 7 Days to Pay your toll, or
  • via a toll invoice you will receive in the mail
  • THERE WILL BE NO OPPORTUNITY TO PAY WITH CASH AT ANY TOLL PLAZA between the hours of 10 pm and 6 am

Are there different ways to pay than using a transponder? Can I use cash?

Yes! Here is how you pay with cash:

How can I set up these accounts?

It’s easy, just visit the NH E-ZPass website. For a Business or an Anonymous Account, download an application or go to an E-ZPass Walk In Center.

How do I pay without a transponder?

The 7 Days to Pay program allows you to go online within 7 days to pay your toll. Visit the FAQs page on the NH E-ZPass website and scroll to the bottom for more details. Visit the violations web page if you need to pay a toll.

If you don’t pay within 7 days, we’ll send you an invoice for the toll amount, plus a $1 administrative fee.

If you want to purchase a transponder anonymously, we’ve got you covered!

Visit any E-ZPass Walk In Center (located in Concord, Portsmouth, and Nashua). To see an application, go to Applications and Forms and click on the Anonymous Account Application package in the middle of the page. Providing personal information for these accounts is optional.
