Unlike other toll roads in the DFW Region, here is how the TEXpress Lanes system will work:
A Tollway Within a Freeway
TEXpress Lanes are unique toll lanes added to existing major roadways. They provide more capacity, reduce congestion and pay for much-needed roadway improvements.
You Choose How to Travel
Drive free on the existing, improved general highway lanes, or pay for faster, no-stop-and-go driving on the TEXpress Lanes.
Easy to Use
TEXpress Lanes provide clearly marked and dedicated entry and exit ramps to increase driver safety. Current prices are displayed before each tolling segment to give drivers enough time to decide whether to use TEXpress Lanes.
Demand-Driven Pricing to Keep Traffic Moving
Pricing is based on real-time technology that monitors traffic levels to ease congestion and keep TEXpress Lanes traffic moving at least 50 mph.
Unlike conventional toll roads with static pricing, toll rates on the TEXpress Lanes will fluctuate depending upon the level of traffic and time of day. This means:
Discounts for Carpools and Motorcyclists
Carpoolers (vehicles with a driver and at least one passenger) and motorcyclists can receive a 50 percent discount during peak travel periods on weekdays.
