Toll Rates Changing on Mobility Authority Corridors

(Austin, Texas) —The Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority (Mobility Authority) announced at the October 2023 Board meeting that new rates on 183A Toll, 290 Toll, 71 Toll Lane, 45SW Toll, 183 Toll, and the MoPac Express Lane will take effect January 1, 2024. The 3.7 percent increase on all Mobility Authority roads, except for the MoPac Express Lane, is consistent with the Consumer Price Index. The base rate on the MoPac Express Lane will increase by $0.07 cents. The changes on all other Mobility Authority roads will equate to rates approximately $0.02 – $0.05 greater than the current rates at each toll gantry for customers with electronic tags driving two-axle vehicles.

Pay By Mail customers, or customers who drive on toll roads without an electronic tag, pay rates that are 50 percent higher than rates paid by tag holders plus a $1 processing fee. As a partner in in the Central United States Interoperability hub, the Mobility Authority accepts any of the following tags on its toll roads as payment: Harris County Toll Road Authority’s EZ-TAG, North Texas Tollway Authority’s TollTag, Texas Department of Transportation’s TxTag, Kansas Turnpike Authority’s K-TAG, Oklahoma Turnpike Authority’s PIKEPASS, Florida Turnpike Enterprise’s SunPass, and Bancpass.

There is also an option for customers who wish to pay discounted toll rates without getting an electronic tag: Mobility Authority Prepaid Registered Accounts. This payment method allows customers without an electronic tag to have their tolls paid automatically rather than waiting to receive a toll bill in the mail. Customers can opt in online or over the phone, add $25 to their registered account, and begin driving Mobility Authority-operated toll roads hassle-free. Registered account holders receive a 25 percent savings on Pay By Mail toll rates.

Customers without a tag who choose not to opt in for a Prepaid Registered Account can pay their toll bill in person, over the phone, online, by mail, or QR Code.

Beginning January 1, 2024, electronic tag account holders that do not attach the tag to their vehicles will incur a 10% increase to the tag rate to cover additional administrative costs.
