The New Peach Pass
The current Peach Pass is a small, thin electronic sticker, similar to the GA Cruise Card, which adheres to a vehicle’s windshield. It's connected to an account established with the State Road and Tollway Authority (SRTA) that automatically deducts tolls when using the electronic toll lanes of the I-85 Express Lanes (and future tolling facilities in Georgia).
The newest version, 'The Pay n Go Peach Pass' is a convenient and simple option that gives you access to the I-85 Express Lanes and future toll roads in Georgia. Where the new Peach Pass differs is that with the Pay n Go Peach Pass you do not need a credit or debit card to take advantage of Peach Pass any longer for your commute. You can now pay with cash whenever you like. This is a great benefit for those who do not use credit or debit cards, or if you just prefer to deal in cash. And an added convenience is that one can simply stop by any participating CVS or Walgreens and purchase a Pay n Go Peach Pass with the amount you want loaded ($20 to $500), whenever you want (standard fees will apply). As needed, stop back by the store and add more money to your account with your Pay n Go Peach Pass Reload Card in the amount you would like.
Here's How it Works
Your Pay n Go Peach Pass account is totally anonymous. However, if you would like the added convenience of managing your account online, receiving vital message alerts or getting $5 in toll credits, you can easily convert your Pay n Go to a regular Peach Pass Personal Toll account. Just call the Peach Pass Customer Service Center at 1-855-PCH-PASS (724-7277) or visit one of the walk-up centers (locations are available on www.PeachPass.com) for personal assistance.
There are two Pay n Go Peach Pass options:
Option 1 - The Full Starter Kit includes a Peach Pass Transponder & Reload Card. You purchase a prepaid toll amount ($20-$500 + $2.50), and you add more funds when needed for $1.50 ea time.
Option 2 - The Reload Card
Customers who already have any type of Peach Pass account. Present the Reload Card to the retail cashier, purchase your desired amount of tolling credit (between $20.00-500.00) and the funds will automatically credit to your account.
Your account is totally anonymous with no need to provide personal information or even your license plate number. However, you can easily convert your Pay n Go to a regular Peach Pass account that can be managed online or with the new Peach Pass GO! mobile app!

Still Have a Cruise Card?
Effective June 20, 2011, all existing Cruise Card accounts were changed to Peach Pass accounts so you still have access to travel on the I-85 Express Lanes and all future tolling lanes in Georgia.
You are all set. Have fun and drive safe this summer!
