When you order a pass, you will be required to set up a toll pass account with the state or regional agency that issues the transponder or sticker.

After you get your pass, you will need to associate the transponder number with the vehicle you are using.

Often, families will have more than one vehicle and, consequently, more than one pass on their account. Most agencies permit more than one transponder to be assigned to an account, but only one vehicle may be assigned to a transponder ID at any given time.

Account Information For The Illinois I-Pass

If you wish to order the I-Pass issued by Illinois, the state offers the following types of accounts:

I-Pass For People or Business

Illinois offers a 50% discount to drivers using the Illinois I-Pass on state toll roads. Ordering an I-Pass transponder requires an initial $30 for the first transponder.

Families and business owners who want to use a single account to manage multiple transponders may do so by using the Shared Balance program. The Shared Balance program permits users to maintain a single monetary balance for all the transponders in that account.

It is recommended that heavy toll users, particularly large business and fleet owners, keep larger balances on hand to avoid frequent credit card charges.

Basics About Toll Passes

From E-ZPass To Sunpass, TxTag to I-Pass, A Complete Overview

Basics For All Networks

Most states' and many regions' toll agencies have their version of an electronic toll sticker or transponder, from E-ZPass and compatible transponders like I-Pass and Sunpass, to more regional and local networks, like TxTag, K-Tag or California's FasTrak.

In most jurisdictions, using a transponder means lower toll bills, as many agencies discount the toll rates for toll pass account holders. The discounts can be substantial for regular haulers and commuters, who may need to use a specific road or group of roads on a consistent basis.

See our “Install Toll Pass” section for complete mounting instructions for your toll pass.

It is important to note that Sunpass stickers and transponders issued before May 28, 2021 are only compatible with Georgia and North Caroilna toll roads; the LeeWay, issued in the Fort Myers area, is also only compatible with the old SunPass network system, not the new one.

The accompanying graphics show where each version of SunPass is compatible, and it displays the passes that are compatible with the network of states shown.
