The Transportation Corridor Agencies will no longer collect cash toll payments on its 51-mile toll road network, effective Wednesday, May 14 at 12:01 a.m.
In January, the TCA introduced new electronic toll collection methods that do away with cash-payment stations along state routes 73, 133, 241 and 261. FasTrak users will still be able to use their transponders, but new Express Account license plate imaging will collect tolls electronically as drivers pass through.
“With our new nonstop system, gone will be the need to stop at toll plazas and fumble around for exact change,” said San Joaquin Hills TCA chairman Rush Hill in a statement.
The TCA will be offering new FasTrak and ExpressAccount customers a free week on the toll roads by using the promotional code “FREETOLL,” when signing up for a new account at www.thetollroads.com. The offer ends May 11.
