Drivers can use E-ZPass and I-Pass on Illinois State Toll Highway Authority roads and the Chicago Skyway.

3. How Do I Pay Tolls in Illinois?

If you're not sure how tolls work in Illinois, it's actually quite simple! Your trucking fleet operators can pay tolls in Illinois using an I-Pass or E-Z pass transponder. Traditional methods like cash or card payments are also available. After driving on Illinois toll roads, drivers can also pay online using the Pay by Plate service. If your driver misses a toll on the Illinois Tollway, they can use this online payment service for up to 10 days after driving on the toll road. 

Keep in mind the Pay by Plate service cannot be used for missed tolls on the Chicago Skyway. 

4. What Happens If You Run A Toll in Illinois?

Tolls must be paid within 14 days of driving on the toll road. If not, you will receive an invoice with the charge for the unpaid tolls. If you don't pay the toll online, you will be mailed the invoice. You can also dispute the license plate image or an unpaid toll on the Illinois Tollway website.
