OPTION 1: ELECTRONIC TAG (and save 25% on tolls!)
Electronic tags remain the easiest, most cost-effective way to pay tolls on 183A, 290 Toll, the MoPac Express Lane, 71 Toll Lane, and other toll roads across the state of Texas. Open up a tag account and save 25% off the Pay By Mail toll rate.
The Mobility Authority currently accepts TxDOT’s TxTAG, NTTA’s TollTag, HCTRA’s EZ TAG, and Kansas Turnpike Authority's K-Tag.
Electronic tags are an electronic payment method; you mount the tag sticker on the inside of your windshield behind the rearview mirror and an electronic reader above the toll road sends a signal to the microchip inside the sticker. Then, the tolls are automatically deducted from your tag account, provided there are sufficient funds and your license plate information is up to date.
TxTAG is a local electronic tag option for toll road customers. There are multiple ways to pay your TxTAG toll bill, including online at TxTAG.org, or calling the TxTag Customer Service Center (CSC) by dialing (888) 468-9824 during the business hours of 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday thru Friday for assistance. International customers call 001-214-210-0493.
You can also go in person at the Customer Service Center in Austin, where cash, check, money order and/or credit card payments are accepted, during the business hours of 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday and Friday or 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday.

OPTION 2: PAY BY MAIL
Customers who do not have an electronic tag will receive a bill through the Pay By Mail program. Vehicle registration information must be up to date in order for the bill to be sent to the correct address.
Toll rates for Pay By Mail customers are higher than for drivers with a TxTag to offset the cost of processing license plate information and mailing the toll bill. In addition, each bill comes with a $1.00 processing charge.
Pay By Mail customers have 30 days to pay their bill either in person, via check, online or over the phone. Customers are encouraged to visit our Pay By Mail website, PayTexasToll.com to assist with questions related to your toll bill / notice of non-payment, and with payment processing.
There are multiple ways to pay your Pay By Mail toll bill:
- By Mail: Send payment via mail
- Online: Visit Paytexastoll.com
- Telephone: Call 1-888-811-4565
- Go In Person: At any ACE Cash Express store location nationwide. Learn more here
