NTTA's TollTag turns 25

Posted: Updated:
DALLAS - Some people are celebrating the TollTag today despite the increasing cost of driving on North Texas roads.

The North Texas Tollway Authority says it's been 25 years since the TollTag was invented locally – eliminating the need for drivers toss coins into a toll bucket.

The NTTA plans to commemorate the anniversary with a ceremony in Plano on Thursday. It will honor the 25 earliest customers from 1989.

Customers who open an account on Throwback Thursdays in August also get a $5 toll credit.

The number of toll roads in North Texas has increased from two in 1989 to seven. And the number of drivers using TollTags to pay for them has gone up from about 2,000 to 3 million.
