Toll Rate Change
Announced for SH 130 Segments 5 and 6
Beginning Tuesday, November 11, 2014, toll rates will change on the main lanes of Texas State Highway 130 Segments 5 and 6. The project spans approximately 41 miles, beginning in Mustang Ridge, traveling through three counties (Travis, Caldwell and Guadalupe) and connecting with Interstate 10 in Seguin.
The base toll rate for a light vehicle (such as a family car or pickup truck) will be 17.0 cents per mile or $6.98 to travel the entire length of the roadway. The base toll rate for an 18-wheeler will be 68.1 cents per mile or $27.95 to travel the entire length of the roadway. These base toll rates will be charged to vehicles using a TxTag device.
TxTag is an electronic toll collection sticker applied to the inside windshield of cars and trucks. Drivers can open a TxTag account at www.TxTag.org or by calling the TxTag Customer Service Center (toll-free) 1-888-468-9824.
Drivers may also use a TollTag (issued by the North Texas Tollway Authority) or EZ TAG (issued by the Harris County Texas Toll Road Authority). Drivers who do not utilize an electronic toll collection sticker can choose to Pay By Mail. Paying by mail adds a fee of no more than 33 percent to the base rate toll on SH 130 Segments 5 and 6.
The public can view a map of SH 130 Segments 5 and 6 toll road including entry and exit points and a complete toll schedule at www.mysh130.com. Customers may also contact the SH 130 Concession Company by calling (toll-free) 877-SH130TX or 877-741-3089.
