Toll road collectors will no longer accept cash in the booths, HCTRA officials announced.
If drivers cannot go online, a bill will be mailed to the registered owner of the vehicle. The bill will be for tolls only with no additional fees.
If drivers have an EZ TAG account, tolls will post electronically as usual. The toll road authority said only tolls will be charged during this time. No fees will be added for nonpayment of tolls at the time of the transaction.
Harris County is taking action to eliminate the physical handling and exchange of cash on the toll road system due to #COVID19. #SafetyFirst: if you stop to pay with cash, continue to use the cash lanes, but drive through and pay later.
