Some states may issue discounts for using a toll pass, but not all. In states or on roads where there is a discount, the discount may be limited to those with an account with that state's toll pass system, i.e.: state of Texas.

To learn what discounts may apply to you, simply use our toll calculators. Applicable discounts, and the terms that apply, are shown for each roadway.

Please see the sections below for an easy-to-understand reference to toll pass interoperability. You may download these reference materials as well.

How Do I Get A Pass For Texas?

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

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.

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.

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.
