OK Drivers Get Bill For Unpaid Tolls On Dallas North Tollway

Oklahoma drivers who've traveled south of the Red River in the past few years may be getting a bill in the mail. 

One of our viewers showed us a bill they got in the mail just this week. It's for unpaid tolls on the Dallas North Tollway from back in 2013.

The North Texas Tollway Authority, which controls the toll roads in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, now has access to Oklahoma tags.

This comes after the NTTA teamed up with the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority to allow drivers to use their toll tags interchangeably in both states.

That partnership will become official on August 10, which will mean your Oklahoma toll tag will work in Texas and Texas toll tags will work in Oklahoma.

If you don't just want to wait and see if a bill hits your mailbox you can always call the OTA or NTTA's customer service line to find out if you have any past due fines.

The Oklahoma Turnpike Authority (OTA) released the following statement,

"Many Oklahomans, including PikePass customers, have been receiving invoices for travel on the North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA) for past travel. These invoices are not in the OTA system and not associated with OTA and the interoperability agreement with NTTA. These are tolls incurred by travelers on the NTTA system and OTA has no record of past travel on NTTA roads.

Beginning August 10th, PikePass customers will be able to travel on NTTA roads and receive a lower toll rate and we will have records of Pikepass customers that travel in North Texas.

Questions concerning NTTA past invoices should be directed toward NTTA. Specifically, OTA cannot answer customer questions surrounding the back invoices sent by the NTTA. Please contact NTTA at 972-818-6882 for any questions.

As always, we are centered on customer service and that is why we are beginning interoperability with NTTA, which will provide a quicker and more efficient process for our customers traveling in North Texas."
