How to Pay Tolls

Pay By Mail

TxDOT's toll roads were among the first in the U.S. to allow drivers to pay their tolls by mail. The convenient method of payment is called Pay By Mail. Devices above the toll lanes photograph the license plate of any vehicle without a toll tag, and the owner of the vehicle receives a bill. The bill can be paid online or by phone (1-888-468-9824) with a credit card. You can also mail a check or money order to Texas Tollways CSC, P.O. Box 650749, Dallas, TX 75265-0749. Do not send cash in the mail.

Toll rates for paying by mail are one-third more than for drivers with a TxTag to offset the costs related to processing license plate information. The amount due on a Pay By Mail bill includes tolls charged in the 30-day billing period, a $1.15 statement fee, plus any unpaid balance due on a previous bill. Customers have the option to receive their bills by email to avoid the $1.15 statement fee.

Note: The new statement fee of $1.15 will go into effect on March 29, 2012.

What happens if I don't pay a toll bill?
Failure to pay toll bills results in violation notices. Drivers who fail to pay violation notices on time are subject to collection fees and court fines. Administrative and court fines can total up to $350 per toll charge, plus applicable court fees.
