Fare options

Electronic PIKEPASS or PPass systems are used for payment. Other passes accepted in Oklahoma are TxTag, K-Tag, TollTag, E-ZTag, and NationalPass. There is also cash payment, but you can't get a bill by the number. Therefore, it is recommended that you research Oklahoma toll roads on a map in advance to prepare the right amount.


Payment methods


Beginning in 2021, toll booths on some highways have been closed and replaced by a new non-cash payment by mail system known as PlatePay. Instead of a toll deduction, drivers are mailed a bill for payment, which is reimbursed through an online portal or by check.


The fare is on average 75% higher than other systems because more costs are required. The Oklahoma Highway Authority plans to implement cashless payment through PlatePay on all roads by 2025. To find out if Oklahoma has toll roads, we recommend using special apps or the official website.


A popular electronic fare collection system is Pikepass, launched in 1991. It is an alternative to paying cash tolls. Most drivers immediately deposit $40 tolls into their account, which are gradually deducted while using Oklahoma toll roads. Using Pikepass saves 5%.


How do I avoid missing a payment?


To control the payment, as well as to make it automatically when traveling on toll roads, it is recommended to install the app Uproad. It works on any smartphone or gadget, allows you to recharge your account and forget about late fees. The app applies to the following Oklahoma toll roads:



The Uproad app is a guarantee of honest and transparent rates. The driver only needs to download it, create a personal account and top up his account. A notification will appear before the charge is made. In addition, there is a handy map of Oklahoma toll roads, an online calculator to help during the trip.
