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 cost to open a toll account is $40.88. This amount includes one toll tag at $0.88 and prepaid toll fare in the account of $40.00.

The toll tags are attached on the upper left side of the windshield (where the oil change sticker goes). The tag reader located in the toll lane recognizes the tag number and deducts the proper amount.

Tags are available for all classes of vehicles. They provide 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.
