The LBJ TEXpress Lanes use variable congestion-management pricing to help manage traffic flow and provide faster, more predictable travel. Roadside equipment recalculates real-time prices every 5 minutes, 24 hours a day, aiming to ensure the lanes are moving at 50 mph or faster.
Based on real-time traffic conditions and demand, LBJ TEXpress Lanes toll prices will fluctuate periodically throughout the day to maintain a minimum speed of 50 mph. As traffic levels and demand increase, the toll price changes to keep vehicles moving. Once traffic volumes drop, the price goes down.
Toll prices are based on real-time traffic demand. Average toll prices may range from 15 cents to 35 cents per mile during lighter traffic, and 45 cents to 90 cents during rush hour.
You pay only the current rate displayed on the pricing sign before entering each of the three LBJ TEXpress Lanes tolling segments, even if the rate changes while you’re driving.
If you don’t have a TollTag, TxTag or EZ TAG, our cameras will photograph your license plate. The North Texas Tollway Authority will then send the vehicle's registered owner a ZipCash bill. ZipCash customers pay approximately 50% higher toll rates for processing and collection on the LBJ TEXpress Lanes.
If you are a carpool driver (with at least one passenger) or motorcyclist, save 50% on your weekday rush-hour tolls on the LBJ TEXpress Lanes and other TEXpress Lanes corridors. Click here for more information on HOV Discount Qualifications and Activation.
