With NTTA’s full transition to all-electronic toll collection, we are working to provide all North Texas drivers with convenient ways to pay for tollway use.
Various rental car companies work with NTTA to offer toll road access to all customers or offer an optional toll road plan to customers at the time of the rental. Before driving on NTTA roads in a rental vehicle, please ask your rental car company about its individual toll policy. If NTTA does not have an agreement with a driver’s rental car company or the driver chooses not to opt-in to their rental company’s toll policy, then the driver may be subject to NTTA violations and rental agency fines upon use of toll roads.
If you have a hardcase TollTag, you may temporarily move your TollTag to a rental car after updating your TollTag account with the rental vehicle’s information. After using your hardcase TollTag in a rental car, you must update your TollTag account with your regular vehicle information to avoid administrative fees.
NTTA currently partners with a third party to acquire out-of-state vehicle information for our ZipCash billing process. NTTA aggressively pursues all tolls owed, whether the vehicle is registered in Texas or another state.
Rental car companies have varying toll payment methods, but NTTA’s Zip-Pass offers a consistent way to pay tolls accumulated while driving a rental vehicle during a visit to Dallas/Fort Worth. A Zip-Pass account is available as a short-term method for visitors to pay for tolls while driving in rental vehicles. A Zip-Pass account allows motorists to avoid added fines, fees and opt-in costs charged by rental car companies and assures tolls are paid on time while driving a rental car or visiting Dallas/Fort Worth in a personal vehicle. Customers must call NTTA Customer Service at 972-818-NTTA (6882) to open a Zip-Pass.
You also can ask your rental car company about its individual toll policy. If NTTA does not have an agreement with a driver’s rental car company or the driver chooses not to opt-in to their rental company’s toll policy, then the driver may be subject to NTTA administrative fees and rental agency fines upon use of toll roads.
My vehicle is registered in another state. Can I open a TollTag account with an out-of-state license plate? Or, can I add one to an existing TollTag account?
Yes. TollTag accounts are available to both in- and out-of-state customers. You can open a TollTag account or add a vehicle to an existing account via our online Customer Service Center, at a Regional TollTag Partner location, or by calling us at (972) 818-NTTA (6882). But remember, Texas law requires new residents to update their vehicle registration information within 30 days of relocation. Visit www.TxDMV.gov.
