The per-mile rate will rise from $0.20 to $0.21, totaling approximately $5.60 more per month for most TollTag customers, according to a June 1 NTTA news release.
Drivers who use the pay-by-mail ZipCash method instead of a TollTag will pay double the rate to compensate for collection costs and “provide fairness” among tollway drivers, according to the news release. The ZipCash rate increase will also go into effect July 1.
The $0.01 increase is part of a regular biennial update to the rates, according to the news release.
“This increase in toll rates will help NTTA repay $9.5 billion borrowed to construct our system of safe, clean and convenient toll roads,” NTTA Board Chair Marcus Knight said in the news release. “The rate increase also helps fund our capital plan, including the current expansion of the Dallas North Tollway.”
