All tolls on State Routes 73, 133, 241 and 261 are collected electronically. If you are driving a rental car you can pay your tolls the following ways:
If you are renting or borrowing a vehicle and have a FasTrak account you can temporarily add the vehicle’s license plate number to your account. Log in to your account to add the vehicle on a temporary basis with a start and end date for your rental period. Driving a rental car or borrowed vehicle on The Toll Roads without temporarily adding the license plate number to your account may result in tolls and additional service fees billed through the rental company or a Notice of Toll Evasion.
Register your rental vehicle with The Toll Roads to pay tolls directly:
If you do not have a FasTrak account, you can have tolls charged directly to your credit card while using a rental car. Once you enter the license plate number you will be directed through a process to have tolls charged directly to your credit card for all or part of your rental period. Some companies require you pre-register your vehicle before your drive on The Toll Roads. Any trips incurred before you register the vehicle will be charged directly through the rental company after you return the car, according to your rental agreement.
Registering your rental vehicle will only cover tolls incurred on the 73, 133, 241 and 261 Toll Roads. The following roads do not accept this payment method:
- 91 Express Lanes in Orange County
- 10/110 Metro ExpressLanes in Los Angeles
