IRVINE, Calif. - April 14, 2016
Paying tolls while driving a rental car on Orange County’s Toll Roads has just gotten easier. The Transportation Corridor Agencies (TCA) have partnered with most major rental car companies to simplify toll payments by allowing tolls to be charged directly through rental car agreements. The new rental car toll payment programs, eligible only on State Routes 73, 133, 241 and 261 in Southern California, eliminates the chance of a rental car customer receiving a Notice of Toll Evasion after they return their rental vehicle. Visitors will no longer need to know exactly what toll road they traveled on and where they entered and exited, if they choose to pay tolls through the rental car company or if they pre-register the rental car on The Toll Roads’ website.
When driving a rental car on The Toll Roads, customers can pay tolls the following ways:
“With three new convenient payment options, rental car drivers can travel stress-free in and around Orange County,” said Michael Kraman, TCA’s Chief Executive Officer. “This is a huge step forward for TCA to improve the visitor and traveler experience while they visit Orange County and drive The Toll Roads.”
The Transportation Corridor Agencies (TCA) are two joint powers authorities formed by the California legislature in 1986 to plan, finance, construct and operate Orange County's 67-mile public toll road system. Fifty-one miles of the system are complete, including the 73, 133, 241 and 261 Toll Roads. TCA continues to meet the region's growing need for congestion-free transportation alternatives.
