Nope. And if you had done the slightest bit of research, you'd have known that.
But don't blame E-ZPass for that, blame the SunPass people. They were offered the chance to join the E-ZPass group, but declined.
E-ZPass covers most NorthEastern states, and a few MidWestern ones. More are being added, slowly.
FL, TX, OK, and CA all have their own systems, none of which are compatible with anyone else's.
My GTL has three transponders tucked under the front fairing. E-ZPass, SunPass, and FasTrak. That covers most of the US. For TX, I had a friend add my plate to his TxTAg account, and for OK, well, I just didn't do anything. Fortunately, I never hit any toll roads in Oklahoma . . .
I got my E-ZPass from the Peace Bridge people. At the time, they had no recurring fees, although they did want a credit card so they could add funds whenever I dipped below a certain amount. I'm sure there are other no-fee places as well, but it pays to do your research.
