The best way to reach Dallas is to use the Dallas North Tollway, a 30.2-mile limited-access toll that runs from Interstate 35E near downtown Dallas to US Highway 380 in Frisco.
The Dallas North Tollway – description
The Dallas North Tollway is a quick and convenient connection between Dallas and W. First Street in Prosper. It’s a controlled-access toll road owned and maintained by NTTA (North Texas Tollway Authority). The toll road crosses through the cities of Dallas, Highland Park, Addison, Farmers Branch, Plano, Frisco, and Prosper. The first section of the toll road was started in 1966 and then, the entire road was completed in 1968. It is impossible not to mention that the Dallas North Tollway was the first toll road in the US that implemented an electronic toll collection system. It was in 1989 when the TollTag was introduced. In December 2010, the Dallas North Tollway was converted to all-electronic, cashless toll collection.

How to pay Dallas North Tollway tolls?
Note that the Dallas North Tollway toll facility doesn’t accept cash payments. The best option is to use one of the accepted transponder tags:
If you don’t have a transponder tag, you can pay online later, even several days after you cross the toll facility. The cameras mounted at a toll booth will take a picture of your license plate – they take photos of every vehicle that goes past each toll gantry. The North Texas Tollway Authority will process the picture, and you will receive a ZipCash bill for your trip. Keep in mind that you will be charged a higher rate than drivers who have electronic toll tag devices mounted on their vehicles. Usually, the tolls charged will be at least 50% higher. The ZipCash bill is usually sent within a month. You can pay online at ZipCash Portal, by mail, over the phone, or in person at the NTTA Customer Service Center. If you don’t pay promptly, you will receive additional bills. They will include additional fees. No payment may result in blocking the driver from renewing their car registration.
The Dallas North Tollway is open to all types of vehicles including passenger cars, motorcycles, pickup trucks, SUVs, large trucks, as well as tractors with trailers. If you want to properly calculate the amount you will pay during your travel, use an online toll calculator. It allows drivers to calculate tolls for all the plazas and for all types of vehicles.
