The 73 Toll Road is a popular route for drivers traveling between Los Angeles and San Diego. The 241 Toll Road is a popular route to get to and from the Inland Empire, mountains and deserts to Orange County's beaches.
Travel Tips for Drivers and Visitors:
Temporarily Add a License Plate - Are you hosting out-of-town guests for the holiday or renting or borrowing a vehicle? Temporarily add a vehicle's license plate number to your ExpressAccount® or FasTrak® account to continue to pay electronically. Log in to your account at www.thetollroads.com and click on the "Vehicle Information" tab to easily add a vehicle for a temporary basis.
Pay Tolls Online Using One-Time-Toll - Visitors can pay tolls online or via The Toll Roads' free app using the One-Time-Toll® payment option. With One-Time-Toll, drivers have 5 days after their trip to make a One-Time-Toll payment to avoid receiving a Notice of Toll Evasion. To download the app, search "The Toll Roads" in the Apple App or Google Play Stores.
Calculate Tolls Online - Want to know what the cost is for a particular trip? Check out The Toll Roads' online toll calculator at www.thetollroads.com. To easily calculate your toll, select the road you will drive; your entry and exit points (choose "unknown" if you are not sure); how you will pay; and the number of axles your vehicle has. The toll calculator webpage also features a downloadable map and rate card.
