Application and Agreement
By submitting an application for a MnPASS account, you agree to the following terms:
1. General.
This Application and Agreement ("Agreement") with the Minnesota Deportment of Transportation ("Mn/DOT", "we", "our" or "us"), together with any supplements, allows the person named and his or her agents ("you" or "your") to use the MnPASS Lanes and pay fees and other charges using a MnPASS Transponder ("Transponder"). This Agreement confers only a license; Transponders and all other rights remain the property of Mn/DOT. You agree:
  1. To pay fees and other charges charged to your account ("Account").
  2. To safeguard and use your Transponder in accordance with instructions provided to you in your Transponder package and other materials and/or information provided from time to time.
  3. To obey all applicable laws and regulations.
  4. To promptly review your statement and notify us if you have any questions regarding any charges. Charges not questioned within 30 days after the statement is e-mailed are non-negotiable.
  5. To promptly notify us of any changes to your name, address, phone number, vehicles/license plates used, and, if applicable, credit card number and expiration date.
  6. That the Minnesota State Patrol (MSP) may make available to Mn/DOT reports of incidents on the MnPASS Lanes.
  7. To have your Transponder properly mounted and visible to the MSP or other law enforcement officials at all times while on the MnPASS Lanes.

2. Payments, Minimum Balances, Fees and Charges.

  1. Accounts pay full fees for each trip, have no monthly membership fee, receive no per trip discounts, but have a $1.50 per Transponder monthly fee.
  2. You authorize us to automatically replenish your Account by charging $40, or the equivalent of one month's usage averaged over a three-month period (whichever is greater), to your credit card each time your Account balance falls below $15, or one-week's usage averaged over a three-month period (whichever is greater). These recurring charges will continue until you notify us in writing that you wish to terminate this Agreement.
  3. You acknowlege that it is your responsibility to maintain your Account balance at or above the required minimum balance at all times. If you fail to keep the required minimum balance of pre-paid fees in your Account, you agree that we may deactivate your transponder and/or close your Account and that any further use of the MnPASS Lanes or other use of your Transponder after such deactivation or Account closure will be treated as fee evasion violation, subject to all applicable fees and fines as established by Mn/DOT and/or the State of Minnesota.
  4. You acknowledge that if your Transponder is deactivated or your Account is closed for lack of payment, or violation of MnPASS Lanes' rules, a $25 deactivation fee will be charged to your Account.
  5. You agree to pay a returned item fee of $25 for each credit card transaction returned or refused by your credit card issuer.
  6. You acknowledge that if you do not comply with one or more of your responsibilities under this Agreement, Mn/DOT will incur costs to secure your compliance. You agree to reimburse Mn/DOT for all of its costs incurred in securing your compliance or enforcing your obligations under this Agreement, including fees and administrative charges for such matters as notifying you of fee violations or transponder failures. Such charges will be assessed in addition to statutory penalties for fee violations.
  7. You agree to pay $2 for each statement requested to be provided to you by delivery through U.S. Mail.
  8. You agree to pay a negative balance fee of $10 whever you Account balance falls below $0.

3. Transponders.

  1. You acknowledge that your Transponder must be mounted properly and in good working order. Failure to do so will result in additional processing fees. If a Transponder fails to operate for reasons other than abuse or improper use, return it to us and we'll replace it at no charge. If a Transponder is lost, stolen or fails to operate due to abuse or improper use, we will provide a replacement for $40.
  2. Please notify us immediately if your Transponder is lost or stolen or if you suspect it is being used without permission. You won't be liable for any unauthorized use of your Transponder that occurs after such notification.
  3. If you fail to return your Transponder in good condition upon termination or deactivation of your Account, you authorize us to charge $40 to your credit card.

4. Interoperability.
If you use you Transponder on another fee facility which has an interoperability agreement with us, you agree that we may charge you for any fees, fines and/or other charges arising from such use, and that you will be responsible to us or the other fee facility operator for such fees and/or other charges. Fees and other charges owed in this manner will be charged in accordance with rules, regulations and procedures of the facility on which the transaction was recorded. You further agree we may provide the other fee facility operator with any information contained in this Agreement or other information associated with your Account for purposes of collecting fees, fines and/or other charges. If you fail to update your vehicle license plate with the MnPASS Customer Service Center you may be subject to fee fines and other charges as established by the fee facility.

5. Termination.
Either party may terminate this Agreement at any time by giving written notice to the other party. If we request or you elect to terminate this Agreement, return all Tranponders to us in good condition and we'll refund (without interest) your Account balance and Transponder deposit, less any amounts you owe us. Credit card customer refunds will be processed as a credit toward the credit card on file approximately thirty-five (35) days from receipt of transponder. If your Account balance isn't sufficient to pay all amounts you owe us, you'll remain liable for such amounts, and may become liable for attorneys' fees, service charges, fines and penalties in accordance with applicable law if such unpaid charges are not promptly paid.

6. Changes.
We have the right to change the terms of this Agreement and our policies, deposits, minimum Account balances and other terms and conditions at any time by placing written notice in the U.S. Mail to the address listed on your Account. All such changes will be effective and binding on you unless you terminate you Account and return your Transponder(s) prior to the effective date of the change(s). Fee schedules subject to change without notice. By using the road you agree to pay fees posted on the variable message sign where you enter the MnPASS lane.

7. Limited Warranty.
If you're dissatisfied with any service provided by Mn/DOT, simply return all Transponders to the MnPASS Customer Service Center. We'll refund any remaining balance in your Account (less any amount you owe us) and any remaining deposits.

8. Release and Indemnity.

You acknowledge that we have not made, and we expressly disclaim, any representation or warranty, express or implied, relating to the MnPASS Lanes or any Transponder (including without limitation, any implied or express warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose), other than the limited warranty described in Section 7.

When opening an account, all MnPASS Terms and Conditions apply in addition to the following:

To qualify for the $20 in free toll credits promotion, a MnPASS account must be opened with the special

promotion code associated with the AAA or Benefits Plus (through Hiway Federal Credit Union) promotions.

A new MnPASS account must be opened using a specific promotion code inserted into the new account online

application or by calling the MnPASS Customer Service Center with the special promotion code. New accounts

opened through the website without using the specific promotion code are ineligible.

New account holders who have closed an account in the last 6 months are not eligible to receive the credit.

A total of twenty dollars ($20) will be credited toward the account, not per transponder. This will be in addition

to the prepaid toll balance established by the customer at the time of account opening. Only one free toll credit

amount will be applied per account, regardless of the number of transponders assigned to the account. Also,

only one free toll credit may be applied per household. Credit will be deducted from the account prior to any

paid cash amount. The credit has no cash value, is nontransferable, and cannot be redeemed for cash.

Any travel on the MnPASS Express Lanes will be charged first against any free toll credits applied to the account

and second, against the customer's pre-paid toll balance, in that order. Standard MnPASS account replenishment

requirements will at all times apply.

The $20 toll credit is good only for travel on the I-35W and I-394 MnPASS Express Lanes and only for transactions

made with a valid MnPASS transponder. Toll credits will be deducted from the account prior to any prepaid cash

amounts. Any deposits and/or account fees incurred by the customer (e.g., transponder deposit, lost transponder,

etc.) will be charged to the customer's account and debited against customer's prepaid toll balance.

Unless indicated otherwise, this promotion may not be combined with other MnPASS promotions.

Where a conflict exists between promotions, MnPASS reserves the right to determine which promotion will apply.

MnPASS reserves the right to modify, suspend, cancel or extend any promotion at any time with sixty (60) days'

notice. MnPASS also reserves the right to change, add or delete to the official promotion details and restrictions

at any time during any promotion with sixty (60) days' notice.
