Driving a rental vehicle? The Toll Roads partner with most major rental car companies to simplify toll payments by allowing tolls to be charged directly through rental car agreements. If a car company doesn’t allow drivers to pay tolls through the rental agreement, tolls can be paid online within five days. Always ask your rental car company how tolls are processed and how fees are assessed. Visit TheTollRoads.com/help/rentals for more information.
Hosting guests? You can temporarily add their vehicle’s license plate number to your ExpressAccount® or FasTrak® account to pay their tolls. Log in to your account at TheTollRoads.com and click on the “Vehicle Information” tab to temporarily add a vehicle.
Taking a road trip? Don’t forget to pack your transponder!

The Transportation Corridor Agencies (TCA) are two joint powers authorities formed by the California legislature in 1986 to plan, finance, construct and operate Orange County’s public toll road system. Fifty-one miles of the system are complete, including the 73, 133, 241 and 261 Toll Roads. TCA continues to meet the region’s growing need for congestion-free transportation alternatives.
