NO CASH? USE THE WRONG LANE?

If you did not have enough cash and used a staffed toll lane, you must wait to receive a violation notice before you can pay a missed toll in Maine. There is NO online payment option if you did not have enough cash or failed to pay at a staffed booth/lane.

If you passed through a toll lane that was not staffed by a toll collector, and you do not have an E-ZPass or compatible toll pass, you may use an online payment option. If your license plate is in violation; however, you may not use the online payment option.

NON E-ZPASS TOLL PAYMENTS ▷ 

If you can not use the online payment option, or if you have a violation and are an E-ZPass account holder, whether from Maine or another state, you must call the customer service center to resolve your issue.

PAYING TOLLS IN MAINE

Cash Payment System

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 Maine toll roads.

If you are unable to pay your toll, you will receive a violation.

Maine E-ZPass

Maine is part of the E-ZPass system; therefore, you may use an E-ZPass on toll roads in Maine. Any transponder that displays the E-ZPass or IPass logo will be accepted in Maine. However, only Class 1 Maine E-ZPass holders will qualify for the E-ZPass discount.

E-ZPass Compatibility

If you have an E-ZPass issued in another state, or an IPass issued by Illinois, you may use E-ZPass lanes in Maine.

Make certain you have sufficient funds on your E-ZPass account to pay for the toll charges you will incur; otherwise, it will count as a toll violation.

VEHICLE CLASSES

Counting Axles

counting axles quick reference

This graphic provides only general information about how to count the number of axles on your vehicle. See the information below for detailed information for Maine.

About Vehicle Classes

The classification system is fairly simple in Maine. Tolls are calculated based on the total number of axles your vehicle has. For passenger cars, trucks, vans and SUVs, there are additional classes, depending on whether your vehicle has single-tire or dual-tire rear axles.

If you have a passenger car, truck, van or SUV that qualifies as a Class 1 vehicle, and you are towing a trailer, your vehicle class will be Class 7, if your trailer has one axle, and Class 8, if your trailer has two axles. If your trailer has three axles or more, simply add the total number of axles on your vehicle, plus trailer, to determine your vehicle class. For Class 7 and Class 8, the maximum length of the vehicle, plus trailer, is sixty feet (18.28 meters).

For commercial trucks, simply count the axles on your vehicle, being certain to add the number of axles on the vehicle and the trailer, to get your total number of axles. Then simply find your corresponding vehicle class.

Motorcycles count as a car, including motorcycles with a sidecar. Motorcycles with a trailer would count as either a Class 7 or Class 8 vehicle, depending on the number of axles on the trailer.

Axle Classes

  • Class 1: Two-axle, four-tire cars, trucks, SUVs - no trailer
  • Class 2: Two-axle, six-tire vehicles, incl. trailer
  • Class 3: Three-axle vehicles, incl. trailer
  • Class 4: Four-axle vehicles, incl. trailer
  • Class 5: Five-axle vehicles, incl. trailer
  • Class 6: Six-axles or more, incl. trailer
  • Class 7: Class 1 with one-axle trailer - 60 ft. max.
  • Class 8: Class 1 with two-axle trailer - 60 ft. max.
