New Toll Adjustments Effective July 1 on Orange County’s Toll Roads

All toll points on the 73, 133, 241 and 261 Toll Roads will adjust by two percent

IRVINE, Calif. - June 27, 2019

Beginning  July 1 at 12:01 a.m., tolls will increase two percent on Orange County’s Toll Roads. The toll rate increase is consistent with average inflation assumptions included in the Transportation Corridor Agencies (TCA) policy approved by the Foothill/Eastern Transportation Corridor Agency and San Joaquin Hills Transportation Corridor Agency Boards of Directors.

The toll rate increase ranges from three cents to 17 cents, depending on the location, time of day and day of the week. Click here to view the toll rates.

All tolls are collected electronically on The Toll Roads. Customers can drive and pay their way:

  • Automatically – Pay tolls automatically from a pre-established, prepaid account that can be replenished using credit card, cash or check. Prepaid accountholders are eligible for discounted toll rates at all tolling points on The Toll Roads.
  • Pay-As-You-Go – Have tolls charged individually to a credit card at the end of each day.
  • Online – If you are an infrequent driver of The Toll Roads, or are visiting Orange County, you can pay online using the Pay Tolls Now function on TheTollRoads.com or on our app.

Also starting July 1, The Toll Roads are eliminating the monthly account maintenance fee for FasTrak® accounts – a potential average savings of nearly $25 per year – and launching a new earned discount program for prepaid FasTrak customers.

TCA has successfully financed and constructed 51 miles of toll roads, roughly $4 billion of infrastructure, without the use of tax dollars. All toll revenue collected goes toward retiring bond debt, funding additional improvements and covering costs to operate toll collection. Toll rates are reviewed annually during the budget process and adjustments are implemented at the start of the fiscal year.

Currently, more than 325,000 daily transactions are recorded on the 73, 133, 241 and 261 Toll Roads. Together they comprise 20 percent of Orange County’s highway system and make up the largest toll road network in California. Orange County’s 51-miles of toll roads remain the fastest, easiest and most predictable way to get to and through Orange County.


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 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.
