The Details

Kansas Turnpike

Kansas Turnpike is a freeway standard toll road in the state of Kansas. It spans across the southwest-northeast direction from the Oklahoma border to Kansas City. It gives easy access to the most important cities in the state such as Topeka, Lawrence, and Wichita. The toll road is 236 miles (380 km) long. It has 22 interchanges and 6 service areas.

The Kansas Turnpike – overview

The Kansas Turnpike is situated entirely within Kansas. It is owned and maintained by the Kansas Turnpike Authority. It was built in 1954 – 1956 (the construction process took 22 months in total) and it was supposed to be an ultra-modern express highway. The route carries Interstates 35, 335, 470, and 70. It also carries a piece of 2 US Highways: US Highway 24 and US Highway 40. The speed limit is set at 75 mph (121 km/h). The Kansas Turnpike is used approximately 120,000 times every day.

Kansas Turnpike tolls

Kansas Turnpike is based on a ticket-based collection system. When you enter the toll road (no matter whether you enter at one of the terminuses or at an interchange), you are issued a ticket. The ticket contains information about the toll plaza at which the driver enters. When you are leaving the toll road, the ticket is used to determine the amount of the toll. If you show a ticket at the same toll plaza it was issued from, you will be charged “per minute”, assuming that your trip was more than 15 minutes. If you lose your ticket (or if your trip takes more than 18 hours to complete), you have to pay the highest possible toll rate for that exit.

Can you pay using a transponder tag?

Yes. You can also buy a K-TAG transponder tag. It enables you to go through the toll plaza without having to stop to collect a ticket or pay the toll. Frequent travelers often choose this payment option. Signing up with the K-TAG (as well as EPASS, BestPass Horizon, and PrePass’ ElitePass) is a great way to get a 10% discount and save on costs. You can easily calculate the toll using an online toll calculator.

How much are tolls at Kansas Turnpike?

At Kansas Turnpike, tolls are only paid once for each trip. They are collected upon exiting the Turnpike, at toll booths, through the electronic lane, or through video enforcement at the cashless plaza in east Wichita. The cost of the toll road is a fixed rate based on the number of axles and distance traveled. If you want to travel from the southern entrance to the eastern entrance, you will pay $15 in cash or $11.15 if you are using K-TAG. These rates apply to 2-axle vehicles only. If you use the electronic lane without a pass, you will be mailed a violation statement. However, if you pay online instantly, you may avoid an additional fee.

Love the app, use it every week
Saved our day when we were on a trip and had to take a toll road on our way home
This App allows us worry-free travel on TOLL ROADS...Automatically replenishing our account, notifying us of Automatically paying our access to the Toll Road. Great relief from expensive citations for not paying while driving. Thank you. P.S. A receipt is always sent to us.
I find this app a good way to track my tolls and manage my budget. Works great for this.
The app saves me a ton extra minutes every day. Took the worry out of paying our tolls. Thank you🌴
Better than a toll tag, I use one app on both vehicles and will link my wife's car next week. Easy to travel to other states, since you're registered with all toll authorities they cover.
Been going back to the office a little so been driving more. This is great.
