TEXpress Lanes are designed for motorists who want a reliable and time-saving trip to their destination. They are toll lanes built within an existing highway. Drivers have a choice. They can take the highway’s mainlines at no cost or pay to use the TEXpress Lanes, most which are managed to keep traffic moving 50 mph or faster. Traffic speeds are maintained through dynamic pricing, meaning the price fluctuates based on congestion in the TEXpress Lane.
TxTag, EZ TAG, TollTag, K-TAG, and PIKEPASS are all accepted on the Dallas/Fort Worth area’s TEXpress Lanes. Drivers without a toll tag are charged higher rates.
Discounts for HOV vehicles (vehicles with a driver and one or more passengers) and motorcycles are available during HOV discount periods on all TEXpress Lanes. You must have a valid toll tag installed in your vehicle and register for the discount using the GoCarma app. Visit www.GoCarma.com/dfw to learn more.
It's important to keep your TxTag or other toll tag installed on your windshield and to ensure that your account information is up to date, including your license plate number, so toll charges can be applied correctly to your account. Need a tag? Sign up here for a TxTag.
