"No longer a bargain for drivers."

Central Texas toll roads got a little more expensive Thursday -- at least for TxTag customers.

Tolls along State Highways 130, 45, and Loop 1 are no longer a bargain for drivers. TxTag customers, who have enjoyed deeply discounted rates to drive on the toll roads are now having to pay nearly full price. TxTag customers still get a 10 percent discount.

The main toll plazas on Loop 1 and 45 are 75 cents, while exit ramp tolls are 50 cents. On SH 130, it's a little more expensive. Exit ramp tolls are still 50 cents, but the main toll plazas are $1.50. These prices do not reflect the 10 percent discount for TxTag holders.

If you do not have a TxTag, there are two other payment options. You can pay cash or choose to be billed later. A bill will be sent to the address linked with your license plate number for the amount you owe, plus a $1 servicing fee.

One toll road will be free starting March 3. Central Texas' fourth toll road, 183-A which will service Cedar Park and Leander, is set to open on Saturday. Highway 183-A will be free for everyone until May 1, and people will TxTags can ride for free until June 1.
