What is Pay By Mail?

Toll Bills are issued to drivers who use Central Texas toll roads without having a valid electronic toll tag account. Cameras above the toll lanes record the license plate of all vehicles and the owner of the vehicle is sent a bill once the plate is transcribed and matched with vehicle registration records. Toll rates for Pay By Mail customers are one-third higher than electronic toll tag rates to cover the additional processing costs. Pay By Mail bills also include a $1.00 administrative fee.

Pay By Mail customers have 30 days to pay their bill in person, via check, online or over the phone.

If you received a Toll Bill, a vehicle registered in your name has recently traveled on a Central Texas toll road. Be aware that if you lease or loan your vehicle to someone else, Texas law dictates that the registered vehicle owner is responsible for paying any tolls incurred by that vehicle.
