Oklahoma Pikepass customers can now use transponders on nearly all Texas toll roads

The Oklahoma Turnpike Authority has finalized interoperability agreements with partners in Texas, allowing Pikepass customers to use their transponder in nearly all of that state, the agency said Wednesday.

“We are excited to announce that Pikepass customers will be able to use their transponders in all of Texas,” said Tim Gatz, OTA executive director. “The hard work by all agencies to make this happen will benefit not only our customers, but those from other states that will be able to use their transponders in the state of Oklahoma.”

The agreements will allow Pikepass customers to use their passes on the Harris County Toll Road Authority turnpikes in the Houston area.

In addition, Pikepass may be used on roads in the Austin, Texas, area operated by the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority and TxDOT toll roads. As part of the agreement, customers can now also travel Fort Bend County Toll Road Authority highways southwest of Houston.

The toll road through Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, however, is not included in the new agreement.

The OTA has been interoperable with the North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA) in the Dallas/Fort Worth-area and the Kansas Turnpike Authority (KTA) since 2014.

The new agreements also allow Texas customers with TxTag and EZ Tag to be used on the Oklahoma Turnpike system.

Customers who have both a Pikepass and an EZ Tag should call to determine which tag would benefit them the most.

Due to the potential of billing on both accounts for the same trip, if two tags are located in the same vehicle, OTA recommends users call Pikepass Customer Service Center at 1-800-PIKEPASS (745-3727) to determine the needs of the individual driver.
