North Texas Tollways Increase Effective Oct 1

The Tollways in North Texas have instated an increase effective today, October 1.  This includes the North Dallas Tollway and the George Bush Turnpike.  I was astonished yesterday when I went into Frisco on the new stretch that opened on Friday and it was $1.30 for the Eldorado exit... WHAT??!!  $1.30!!  That's crazy!

To go see my client in Frisco yesterday, it cots me $0.50 to get onto the Bush.  $1.00 is charged at the Coit overpass.  When I get onto the Dallas North Tollway, it's $1.00 at Parker.  Then it was $1.30 to exit at Eldorado.  That's $3.80.  That's $7.20 round trip.  This is getting ridiculous!!!

However, I do have the Tolltag on my car, so the rates are slightly less, so let's look at it with the tolltag.  $.40 to get on at Renner. $.70 at the Coit overpass.  $.70 at Parker and then $1.05 at the Eldorado exit.  That's $2.85, which is $5.70 round trip.

I saved a whopping $0.95 to have a tolltag.  You can't even by something off the $1 Value Menu at any fast food restaurant!!!  However, going round trip saves me $1.90 so that gets me almost a $1.99 Happy Meal!!

Personally, I think the discount should be much more substantial to have the Tolltag rather than cash.  It's the cash people who are making people do extra work and it's more inconvenient for those drivers.  The Tolltag saves people a lot of time and energy, especially the North Texas Tollway Association ( and they should charge Tolltag users less!

Here's the site that shows you the fees at each and every exit up and down all North Texas Tollways.

This is getting ridiculous.

We will never get rid of any toll booths as promised.
