Oklahoma PikePass holders will soon be able to use their privileges on toll roads in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

Beginning on August 10, drivers with PikePasses will be able to ravel, unimpeded on toll roads, bridges and tunnels in the Dallas metroplex. Texas drivers with TollTags will also be able to use their passes on Oklahoma’s turnpikes.

The wheels to put this whole thing into play began turning back in Oct. 2013. Back then, the North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA) passed a resolution at its monthly board meeting that allowed for Texas drivers to use their TollTags on 10 turnpikes in Oklahoma. The Oklahoma Turnpike Authority passed a similar resolution at its monthly board meeting later that month.

The NTTA operates three toll roads in the Dallas/Fort Worth area: the Dallas North Tollway, George Bush Turnpike and the Sam Rayburn Tollway.

PikePass users on NTTA toll facilities should not display an NTTA Toll Tag on any vehicle that has a PikePass. All transactions will be deducted from your PikePass account. Transactions on NTTA toll ways will not qualify for the PikePass volume discount program. PikePass statements will segregate transactions on Oklahoma and Texas toll roads.
