New Vehicle Classifications
Learn about the new vehicle classifications for the NTE TEXpress Lanes.

Paying By Shape and Size of Vehicle

Unlike other North Texas toll roads, toll prices on the NTE TEXpress Lanes vary by the shape and size of the vehicle you drive, not the number of axles. For example, motorcycles, cars, SUVs, most vans and pickup trucks pay the same price. Large and extra-large trucks pay a slightly higher toll price on the NTE TEXpress Lanes. The LBJ TEXpress Lanes are the only other TEXpress Lanes in the system to use shape-and-size-based vehicle classifications.
