    • NTTA TOLL RATES TO INCREASE JULY 1
      6/1/2021 3:00 PM

      PLANO, TEXAS – June 1, 2021 – The North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA) will increase toll rates July 1, implementing a biennial toll rate schedule approved ​by its Board of Directors. TollTag rates will adjust an average of one penny per mile - from 19 to 20 cents. ZipCash (pay-by-mail) customers who do not get a TollTag, pay toll rates at least 50 percent higher.

       “This incremental increase in toll rates will help NTTA repay $9.5 billion borrowed to construct its system of safe, clean and convenient toll roads and fund nearly $2 billion of improvements over the next five years,” said NTTA Chairman John Mahalik.

       Since NTTA does not receive tax funding, only drivers who choose to use the toll roads pay for them. Tolls also fund NTTA’s safety and roadside service programs and high-quality road maintenance.

       TOLLTAG BENEFITS:

      • Lowest toll rates – ZipCash customers pay at least 50 percent more than TollTag users
      • Convenience of electronic payment and getting the lowest rates on any toll road in Texas, Oklahoma or Kansas
      • Convenient payment for parking at DFW International and Dallas Love Field airports
      • Easy online account access – Check your balance, print receipts and update your information
      • TollPerks – Earn rewards for driving on NTTA roads
      • No bills, no hassles – Avoid monthly ZipCash invoices and potential late fees

       ZipCash customers who switch to a TollTag will actually lower their toll road costs. NTTA offers $20 and cash-backed TollTag options so even infrequent toll road users have a way to get the best rates.

       New rates will take effect July 1. Crews will be updating toll rate road signs in the coming weeks – please be alert for workers on the roads.
