Just drive down to EZPass office next time you have a rider heading to LGA. It's only a short 5-8min drive. BTW, a new tag will not work for the first 24 hrs so don't attempt to use it right away

Stick to the Battery Tunnel every time or Henry Hudson Bridge - they are cashless. Pax are paying flat rates anyway.

So I can still drive people around and then go grab it at some point?
Sure, pay $8 for bridges and tunnels and get only $5.40 from Uber. You will also get a 1 star rating from the pax for wasting time on cash lane. Lastly, it is mandatory for a FHV to have EZ Pass.

What are the rules regarding the use of E-Z Pass when passing through tolls?

From Driver Rule 54-15(f)(2), Driver Rule 55-15(f), 60A-23 (in PDF):
The taxicab driver must use the E-Z Pass when passing through tolls. The passenger will reimburse the driver for any toll cost during the trip. The passenger will be paying the discounted E Z Pass toll rate.

So once I get my car, then go to ez pass and get that and then I can drive people around

I want to drive immediately. So let's say I pick up my car tomorrow and am registered and active with uber and ready to drive:

How do I get ez pass from toll plaza or the bridges that have em? Is there someone there that I can get it from? How does it work?

Just went through this 2 weeks ago. You can purchase an EZ Pass at the cash lanes of a toll. But you have to activate it on the EZ Pass web site. If you are driving a rental, it will probably show that the car is already assigned to an EZ Pass. If that is the case, then you need to go to an EZ Pass location to get an EZ Pass, HOWEVER, you will need a letter from the rental company (i.e. American Lease, Tower, etc.) which tells EZ Pass to switch the EZ Pass and allow your account to be on that car. If you own the car, you should be able to do it all on their web site.

Or change one letter of your plate number. It will work.
