Toll Information for Ohio


Cameras take a picture of your license tag as you go through a toll booth lane. If a signal is not received from a transponder, and no match to your license plate or an active electronic toll account is found, an unpaid toll notice will be mailed at the address of the owner of the vehicle on file with the Ohio Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles or your state of registration, in compliance with Ohio Statute. Failure to comply with the unpaid toll notice may result in the issuance of a Uniform Traffic Citation.

Counting Axles

ohio toll classes

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

Tolls and Vehicle Classes

Any driver that uses a toll road in Ohio is expected to pay the toll for that roadway. In Ohio, the tolls are set by the Ohio Turnpike and Infrastructure Commission in Berea, Ohio.

About Vehicle Classes

The classification system is a bit different in Ohio than elsewhere. Tolls are calculated based on the number of axles on your vehicle and by vehicle height. The height of the vehicle is determined by measuring the height over the FIRST TWO AXLES.

When you count the axles on your vehicle, be certain to add 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.

Axle Selections

  • 2-Axles includes a car, van, SUV, motorcycle or pickup truck
  • 3-Axles or high 2-Axle vehicles
  • 4-Axles or high 3-Axle vehicles
  • 5-Axles or high 4-Axle vehicles
  • 6-Axles or high 5-Axle vehicles
  • 7-Axles or high 6-Axle vehicles

In Ohio, there is no axle setting for a vehicle higher that the 7-Axle selection. If you have seven or more axles, use the 7-Axle option.



The cash payment system speaks for itself. When you pay by cash, you are responsible for having sufficient funds to pay for your tolls while driving on Ohio's Turnpike.

If you do not have enough cash, you may use a credit card or debit card.

If you are unable to pay your toll, you will receive a ticket/certificate of passage for the amount of the unpaid toll, plus an administrative fine.


Ohio is part of the E-ZPass system; therefore, you may use an E-ZPass on Ohio's Turnpike. Make sure you have adequate funds in your E-ZPass account before making your trip; otherwise, you will be assessed a toll violation and fine.
