NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) - Get ready to dig a little deeper when you drive on a North Texas toll road. The North Texas Tollway Authority is instituting its biennial toll rate increase on July 1.
The rate increase, from 15.31 to 16.16 cents per mile, is less than one cent per mile. The NTTA estimates a typical TollTag customer who spends $40 per month will see an increase of about $2.25 per month.
The increase is even bigger for ZipCash customers, who pay 50 percent more than TollTag customers.
The NTTA follows a schedule that requires toll rates be increased every other July.
The NTTA serves Collin, Dallas, Denton and Tarrant counties and oversee roadways including the Dallas North Tollway, President George Bush Turnpike and Sam Rayburn Tollway.
You can view the new rates and calculate your cost by visiting the NTTA website.
