The North Texas Tollway Authority will increase toll rates July 1, implementing a biennial toll rate schedule approved by the board. On average, TollTag rates will go up 1 penny per mile, from 18 to 19 cents.
TollTag drivers receive discounted toll rates. ZipCash customers — drivers who do not have a TollTag and are billed by mail — pay at least 50% higher toll rates on NTTA toll roads.
NTTA says regularly scheduled toll rate increases help the agency plan and fund transportation choices and meet financial obligations, including repaying more than $9.25 billion in bonds issued to build area toll roads.
In addition, NTTA is in the process of reinvesting nearly $2 billion into capital projects, including the construction of additional lanes on the Dallas North Tollway, President George Bush Turnpike and Sam Rayburn Tollway.
