(Austin, Texas)— The Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority (Mobility Authority) announced at the December 13, 2017 Board meeting that new rates will go into effect on toll facilities operated by the Mobility Authority on January 1, 2018. The 2.23% increase, consistent with the Consumer Price Index, will equate to rates approximately $0.01 – $0.03 greater than the current rates at each toll plaza. The rate increase does not apply to the MoPac Express Lane.

183A Toll

The Lakeline Mainline will increase from $0.55 to $0.56, the Crystal Falls Mainline will increase from $1.05 to $1.07 and the Park Street Mainline will increase from $1.48 to $1.51. Rates for Pay by Mail Customers will also increase by 2.23%, with the adjustment adding nine cents to the cost of a full-length trip.

The increases are part of a Mobility Authority policy that adjusts rates annually in line with inflation to avoid larger increases every five years. To inform customers of this rate change, the toll rate signs on the 183A and 290 Toll Roads as well as the 71 Toll Lane will be updated in advance of the rate increase. However, customers will continue to be charged the lower 2017 rates through December 31.
