Cash toll collection remains suspended in many locations due to COVID-19. A compatible toll pass must be used. In some cases, you may use exact change. In other circumstances, a photo of your vehicle's license plate will be taken to determine where to send a toll invoice.

Any driver that uses a toll road in Kansas is expected to pay the toll for that roadway. In Kansas, the tolls are set by the Kansas Turpike Authority, usually abbreviated, "KTA".
See below for additional information about toll classes and paying violations.
If you did not have enough cash, used the wrong lane or have another type of violation, you can pay for the violation online. You must first have your violation statement. You will need the violation statement to begin the payment process. In Kansas, violation statements are normally mailed within six weeks of the violation.
If you want to dispute your violation notice, you may use the payment violation form, once you have received your violation statement. Simply provide the invormation on the form to dispute the violation, then return the form to the address on your statement.

The cash payment system speaks for itself. When you pay by cash, you are responsible for having sufficient cash funds to pay for your tolls while driving on Kansas toll roads.
If you are unable to pay your toll, you will receive a violation statement for the cost of each violation.
Kansas uses an electronic toll system called K-Tag. K-Tag transponders can be used by private and commercial users.
If you have a Kansas K-Tag, it is compatible with the Oklahoma PikePass system, as well as the TxTag in Texas. It is also compatible with two regional transponder systems, EZ Tag in Houston and TollTag in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Likewise, those transponders will work on Kansas' toll roads.
Make certain you have sufficient funds on your K-Tag or compatible account to pay for the toll charges you will incur; otherwise, it will count as a toll violation.
This graphic provides general information about how to count the number of axles on your vehicle. See the information below for detailed information for Kansas.
The classification system is simple in Kansas. Tolls are calculated based on the number of axles your vehicle has. Any trailers that are towed behind your vehicle will also have the axles counted. When you count the axles on your vehicle, be certain to include both the number of axles on the vehicle and the trailer to get your total.
Motorcycles count as a car, including motorcycles with a sidecar. Motorcycles with a trailer would count two axles for the motorcycle, plus the number of axles on the trailer, to get a total.
In Kansas, there is no class of vehicle higher than Class 9. If you have ten or more axles, use Class 9.
Typically, classes five (5) and higher are considered commercial classes.
