If you have Bestpass coverage in Texas and run State Highway 130 toll instead of Interstate 35, you could be rewarded with a big toll discount! In an effort to increase highway safety as well as reduce traffic congestion on I-35, the Texas Department of Transportation is offering up to a 75% toll discount for 18-wheelers through August 2017.

Phase 1 of the Truck Toll Discount Program began in April 2016 and Phase 2 is set to run from November 1, 2016, through August 31, 2017. The discount program pertains to State Highway 130 (Georgetown to US 183 exit in Buda) and State Highway 45SE during peak hours of 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. Monday through Friday.

What do you have to do to get the discount? Just have a Horizon transponder properly registered in Texas and you will automatically get the discount. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact our Customer Service Team at support@bestpass.com or 1-888-410-9696.

Other Austin tolls will not be affected by TxDOT's Truck Toll Discount Program.
