NTTA logoVisiting Dallas and traveling on toll roads? The best way to get around town is the Zip-Pass from the North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA).

Toll Tags for Visitors
Zip-Pass offers a convenient way to pay tolls when driving a rental vehicle or a borrowed car on NTTA toll roads.  A Zip-Pass account is a short-term method to pay for tolls, helping you to avoid added fines, fees and opt-in costs charged by rental car companies. It offers you the assurance that your tolls are paid on time and you won’t incur late fees from the NTTA. 

The account can be opened for just $5 a day with a minimum balance of $20. The account will be rebilled if the balance goes below $10. Most importantly, your unused balance is returned to your account instead of the use-it-or-lose-it approach of third-party agreements.

To open an account, call NTTA Customer Service at 972-818-NTTA (6882) or 817-731-NTTA (6882) and provide the following information to get on the toll road conveniently, safely and quickly:

  • A beginning and end date for the temporary account
  • A debit/credit card number
  • Address and contact number
  • Make, model, year and color of vehicle
  • License plate number and state
  • Driver license number

Welcome to North Texas! The NTTA has more than 850 tolled lane miles, which means you will likely find yourself on one of our roads as you travel around throughout the region.

The quickest, easiest and most cost-effective way to drive on NTTA toll roads is with the TollTag. Pay-by-mail customers pay up to 50 percent higher rates than TollTag account holders. With a TollTag, you avoid the hassles of mailed bills, since tolls are automatically deducted from your account. (Learn about our cashless tolling.) You can apply for a TollTag online, at an NTTA Customer Service Center or through a participating Regional TollTag Partner or ACE Cash Express location.

Once you have a TollTag, enjoy the benefits of discounted pass through and parking at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, convenient payment for parking at Dallas/Fort Worth International and Love Field Airports and automatic payment on any toll road in Texas. Plus, you can have up to three TollTags on a single account at no additional cost.

Easily manage your TollTag account (1) online, (2) through the free Tollmate mobile app or (3) by calling 972-818-NTTA (6882) or 817-731-NTTA (6882) or by visiting one of the NTTA Customer Service Centers.
