EZ Tag lanes will continue normal operations. However, cash will not be accepted at toll booths.

If you usually use the cash lanes, continue to do so as normal. The HCTRA is requesting drivers pay cash tolls online.

To do so, look up your license plate number at¬†hctra.org/MissedAToll. You’ll be prompted to pay with a debit or credit card. There is no penalty for paying later online.
