IPass

I'm wondering if anyone has any more info about the whole IPass thing. Being that I'm from Indiana and being that I try to attend as many CLSB events as I can (and being that those are ALWAYS in IL, grr... ), I spend quite a bit of time on 90 & 294, and digging for change in your leathers with people behind you honking isn't all that fun. So anyone use one of these on a bike? Where can I get one?

And how do you pay for them? Is it like a 'pre-pay' system, or do you get a monthly IPass bill or something?

its pre-pay.. you can pick them up at any Jewel Store.. its a $10 depoist and they useally want $40 put on it.. and then it auto charges your CC another $40 when your balance gets to $10.00.

i use it on the bike all the time.

You also can stop at the larger toll booths to get them or just get one online.....

Ordering it online works pretty good. I got mine about a week ago.

You can manage your account online, and see what tolls you crossed. www.illinoistollway.com

What about mounting it? I'm looking at the site and they show lots of car mounting instructions. If I'm on the bike can I just stick it in my pocket?

Also if you happen to forget it, they will just run your plate# and charge your acct accordingly.

I never carry the I-Pass on my bike i just let them run my plate


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!

windshiled on the bike is the best place.. if its in your pocket you will have to pull it out everytime you go thru the toll...

Comes with 3M velcro pads. You can order additional velcros from that website above for free. I put it on my bikes windshield.

Not sure about the pocket thing. It better not have any sorts of things blocking the thing. I guess it's a weak signal transponder, so putting it in your pocket may prevent it from working?

I always have it in my car, just never on the bike..To much pain in the ass. Plus it won't stick to my windshield, double bubble has no flat spot big enough.


P.S. Make em work for the damn money anyways

What!???

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

Ordering it online is really quick. I ordered one on Friday and I got it in the mail yesterday.

I think I'll just do what Cheyenne suggested, and just keep the Ipass in my gf's car. My 10R is registered with Ipass. How does this work if the Ipass lane doesn't get a signal from the transponder? Do I get sent a bill or what?

They'll send you a letter when you get about ten of them. You just have to check the back of the letter saying you have Ipass and put your account number on there and they'll charge you account.

I've NEVER gotten a bill from them about my I-Pass. Aslong as your name/license is registered they just take it from your acct.

I have NEVER carried my pass on the bike and they have ALWAYS taken there share from my acct.

?, when u check your account with Ipass they give u time and the date right? so u can run that route and see how well u did compared to the other runs? nice, thank you I pass, racing on the highway made easy, dont race against the other bike, race against the ipass timer and then compare with others, i have to say sweet, maybe i should get one of those, just for that, but i bet popo get to see those numbers too, and its a matter of time before they start to send u a notice that they billed your IPass for a speeding ticket, buhahah

That's incorrect information. I have 1 ipass unit for my car and bike. If I don't have the ipass in my car or on the bike when i go through the toll, they'll send me a notice of toll violation with a picture of the back of the bike or car showing my license plate numbers. If you get a notice you'll have to call them with your ipass acct number and they'll let you pay the tolls by credit card. If you don't have an ipass, you'll have to pay $20 for each violation. I have both notices to prove it. That whole system needs to updated. The system itself doesn't run a search in it's database to see if your an ipass holder. Talk about bad planning/programming.
