The North Texas Tollway Authority will increase toll rates on July 1, implementing a biennial toll rate schedule announced in 2009. The rates will adjust less than a penny per mile from 15.3 to 16.2 cents.
Tolls go directly toward quality maintenance of existing tollways and the NTTA’s safety and service programs. NTTA does not use tax dollars to operate and maintain area toll roads that relieve congestion. This regularly scheduled increase keeps pace with the rate of inflation associated with building and operating area toll roads.
“Drivers tell us that they choose to pay for an NTTA toll road because they are cleaner, faster and safer,” said NTTA Chairman Kenneth Barr. “We understand that area motorists have a choice when they travel in North Texas, and we work every day to meet their expectations.”
Tolls are a pay-as-you go method to recover costs from only those drivers who use the road and provide a dedicated, ongoing way to pay for NTTA operations, maintenance and road improvements. The NTTA continues to deliver new roads to relieve congestion including the future Chisholm Trail Parkway, the NTTA’s first project in Tarrant County.
NTTA customers can view the new rates and calculate costs on traveling on NTTA roadways online at NTTA.org or with the new, free NTTA Tollmate app also available at NTTA.org.
