The EZ Tag program at Houston Airports has not had enough users for the program to earn money. See the article here. It costs $170,000 a month to run it and gets only about $90,000 a month coming in from users.
I know some people will be upset by this change, and that is understandable. We want an easy process for both Houstonians and visitors when using any Houston airport; however, I do have to say that I am impressed by the Harris County commissioners for finding something that doesn’t work and getting rid of it. They didn’t look to increase the costs to us. I don’t know how much they researched the reasons why it wasn’t being used as anticipated, but at least they aren’t going to continue throwing money into something that doesn’t work.
