The electronic toll collection system allows motorists the ease of not having to stop and pay the tolls. It gathers identification data from moving vehicles by way of toll tags and transfers that data to a computerized management system. For each trip on the Causeway, the computer deducts a credit against prepaid toll fares. When the prepaid account reaches a minimum balance, a caution light at the toll lane notifies cash patrons that their account balance is low and a payment is required. (Patron’s accounts set up on charge cards are replenished automatically.)

The toll tags are attached behind the rear veiw mirror with the logo facing out. The tag reader located in the toll lane recognizes the tag number and deducts the proper amount.

There are two types of toll tag accounts:

  • 1 – Discount – Available for passenger vehicles under 7 feet in height.
  • 2 – Full Fare – Available for all remaining vehicle classes.

Discount Toll Tags

$2 per round trip Discount toll tags are available for passenger vehicles under 7 feet in height. This tag allows the patron to cross for $2.00 per trip. The cost for this tag package is $52.50. This amount includes of a $12.50 one time tag sale and $40 that is applied to your account.

Full Fare Tags

These tags are available for all other classes of vehicles. This tag provides the convenience of not having to stop and pay the cash toll, and also enables you to use the “tag only” lanes. Rates for these vehicles are determined by the number of axles and height of the vehicle. For example: A truck 2 axles over 7 feet in height would pay $6.00. The total cost for this tag would be 12 trips at $6.00 plus a $12.50 one time tag sale and would total $84.50.
