2012-05-03: Massachusetts Turnpike, the Airport tunnels and Tobin Bridge yellow-on-black FAST LANE signs are being replaced by white-on-purple E-ZPass starting next week. And the white-on-green Citizens Bank advertisements atop the electronic toll lane signs will disappear too.
Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) will drop the transponder tolling brand FAST LANE and adjacent Citizens Bank signs around October 1st next year when its sponsorship contract with the bank expires. The state is going mainstream and adopting the E-ZPass brand-name.
A class action lawsuit has been filed against the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority over its denial of transponder discounts to E-ZPass drivers that it grants to users of its own transponder branded FAST LANE.
