Ohio Turnpike and Infrastructure Commission launches new toll collection system

April 11, 2024
The new toll collection system will feature a combination of open road tolling lanes for E-ZPass customers and a gated exit system for non-E-ZPass customers who prefer to pay by cash or credit card.

The Ohio Turnpike and Infrastructure Commission’s new toll collection system, which started as a vision and a study in 2016, recently went live.

“The modernization of the toll collection system has been a long, challenging, and complex project," said Ferzan M. Ahmed, P.E., executive director of the turnpike commission. "But the moment we have anticipated—following meticulous testing of the electronic tolling system over the past several months—has arrived."

"The Ohio Turnpike's new toll collection system was five years in the making," Ahmed added. "The commission approved the first contract in 2019."

To accommodate all travelers on the 241-mile Ohio Turnpike, also known as Interstate 80, I-90, and I-76, the new toll collection system will feature a combination of open road tolling lanes for E-ZPass customers and a gated exit system for non-E-ZPass customers who prefer to pay by cash or credit card.

E-Z Pass use by Ohio Turnpike passenger vehicles and commercial trucks was 74.1% in 2023, up 0.7% from 2022.
