About Pay By Mail

Pay by Mail invoices are issued to drivers who use North East Texas Regional Mobility operated toll roads without having a valid TxTag, TollTag, EZ Tag, K-Tag, Pikepass, BancPass, or registered a pre-paid account. Cameras above the toll lanes record the license plate of any vehicles without a toll tag, and the owner of the vehicle is sent a bill. Toll bills include a $1 administrative fee.

If you received a toll bill, a vehicle registered in your name has recently traveled on a North East Texas Regional Mobility Authority toll road. Be aware that if you lease or loan your vehicle to someone else, Texas law dictates that the registered vehicle owner is responsible for paying any tolls incurred by that vehicle. Failure to pay a toll bill can result in additional fees and court fines.

Pay By Mail customers have 30 days to pay their bill in person, via check, online or over the phone.

TxTag customers receive an ongoing 25% discount off the Pay By Mail toll rates and avoid the $1 processing charge associated with each toll bill. Click here to learn more about TxTag and how to sign up.
