TEXpress Lanes

The TEXpress Lanes System is all about choice, predictable travel speeds, and congestion relief. There are more than 100 miles of TEXpress Lanes open on eight North Texas roadways. These lanes form a system across the Metroplex allowing drivers to commute from one side to the other with less congestion.

There are two types of TEXpress Lanes including:

Tolled managed lanes

Designed to keep traffic moving at least 50 mph, traffic speeds are managed through dynamic pricing, meaning the price fluctuates based on congestion in the lanes. Registered HOVs and motorcycles receive a 50 percent discount during peak travel periods.

Express lanes

Designed to relieve congestion, these lanes are barrier separated from the mainlanes with fewer entrances and exits. Vehicles may use the lanes at zero toll cost.


As with other toll roads in the region, the North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA) handles all billing and related customer service functions for the TEXpress Lanes. The NTTA processes payments for TollTags, TxTags, and EZ TAGs.

HOV discounts

HOVs (high-occupancy vehicles) are vehicles with a driver and one or more passengers or motorcycles.

Registered HOV drivers and motorcycles receive a 50% discount during peak periods (Monday-Friday, 6:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.)

To register for HOV discounts, visit GoCarma or download the GoCarma app. Vehicles must have a TollTag, TxTag, or EZ Tag to register.
