Toll rates to change for SH 130 segments 5 and 6
Vehicles with TxTag and other electronic toll tags still pay lowest rates
AUSTIN, TEXAS (Oct. 11, 2019) — Toll rates on the 41-mile southern stretch of SH 130 between Mustang Ridge and Seguin will increase on November 11 for the first time in four years.
The cost of driving the full length of SH 130 segments 5 and 6 for a light vehicle – such as a family car, pickup truck or motorcycle – will be $7.48 with an electronic toll tag, nine cents more than the current toll rate. For an 18-wheeler with an electronic toll tag the full-length cost will be $29.87, an increase of 36 cents.
Vehicles with an activated toll tag — an electronic sticker applied to the inside windshield such as the Texas Department of Transportation’s TxTag — pay the lowest toll rates. The North Texas Tollway Authority’s TollTag, Harris County Toll Road Authority’s EZ Tag, Oklahoma’s PikePass and Kansas’ K-Tag also work on all toll roads that display the TxTag logo and qualify for the lowest rates along SH 130.
Drivers who do not have an activated electronic tag are charged the Pay-by-Mail rate which can be as much as 33 percent higher and is billed by mail to the vehicle owner.
Toll rates along the southern segments of SH 130 are based on terms detailed in the Facility Concession Agreement between SH 130 Concession Company, LLC and the Texas Department of Transportation.
