How Do I Get A Pass For Kentucky?

If you want to order a Kentucky RiverLink, the options below will guide you to the proper agencies in Kentucky.

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.

Kentucky offers travelers a RiverLink transponder that is compatibile across the E-ZPass system. The E-ZPass-compatible RiverLink transponder unit costs $15 each, and you must still fund your account with pre-paid tolls before you can use your new RiverLink.

The RiverLink transponder, unlike the local-use sticker, can be moved from vehicle to vehicle, as you desire, as long as each vehicle is registered with RiverLink, so that the transponder and your license plate will be matched properly.

  • $15 each unit
  • May be used on the Louisville toll bridges
  • Fully compatible with E-ZPass across multiple states, including Indiana, Ohio, Illinois and more.

Toll Pass Networks

Basics For All Networks

Most states' and many regions' toll agencies have their version of an electronic toll sticker or transponder that may be used to pay your tolls without having to use cash. In most jurisdictions, the use of an electronic transponder will result in lower toll costs, as many agencies discount the toll rates for toll pass users. 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.

E-ZPass States

The E-ZPass system is the largest interoperable toll collection and payment system in the United States.

States connected to the E-ZPass system include Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia and West Virginia.

Additionally, as of May 28, 2021, all of Florida's toll roads are compatible with E-ZPass.

E-ZPass compatibility map

SunPass States

The SunPass is used primarily on state and local toll roads in Florida. SunPass unveiled the Sunpass Pro in 2021, which is compatible with all E-ZPass roads. E-ZPass transponders and stickers are now compatible on Florida toll roads.

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.

TxTag & The Southern Plains

TxTag is the statewide pass used across the state of Texas. There are two other major regional systems in Texas: the TollPass from the Dallas-Fort Worth area and the TollTag from the Houston area. Both systems are compatible across the state of Texas.

Additionally, all passes from Texas may be used in Oklahoma and Kansas, and vice versa. The Kansas K-Tag and the Oklahoma PikePass are also compatible across this tri-state region of the Southern Plains.

TxTag compatibility map

FasTrak

FasTrak is California's statewide electronic toll system. It is not compatible with systems outside California.

Other Passes

There are other toll systems in states that operate toll roads, tunnels and/or bridges. These include Colorado's ExpressToll and Go Pass!, the Good To Go pass in Washington State, as well as various bridge passes and cards that are used at international crossings between the United States and Canada.

We are preparing to publish an updated toll pass compendium for 2021. However, you may view and download a our old combo file containing all three of the major networks. This file was created by TurnpikeInfo.com in 2017 and last updated in 2018.
