RI joins E-ZPass

WOOOHOOO! Rhode Island has finally joined the E-ZPass System. For those unfamiliar with this technology, automobiles are registered and fitted with a transponder device that is read by sensors at toll stops. No more fishing for change or tokens or hoping someone in the car has a small enough bill to hand over for change.

Many of our guests come from states that use E-ZPass. Those guests will be able to use it on the Pell Bridge over Narragansett Bay between Jamestown and Newport. No more long lines when you want to zip over for a Mansion Tour or to chill at the Music Festivals.

E-ZPass is just one more reason to stay in Narragansett for less crowded beaches and attractions, dining, and better value for your lodging dollar.
