RIO GRANDE VALLEY, Texas – The Texas Department of Transportation’s annual toll rate increase is set to start on January 1, 2020.
Those who Pay By Mail will be feeling the biggest increase as the surcharge for those transactions will increase to 50% of the base rate paid by all toll users.
The 50% surcharge for Pay By Mail transactions will help pay for rising administrative costs associated with mailed payments.
The raising of this surcharge to 50% also incentivizes having a TxTag account. Motorists with a TxTag account will experience a discount of 33% compared to Pay By Mail Rates.
You can sign up for TxTag online at TxTag.org or by calling 1-888-468-9824.
