Has our wonderful Federal government not created a toll pass that I can use on the Interstate highway system, or am I subject to state/local fees when I pass through one? I do understand what the challenges might be.

Let me guess: No such thing...keep change/dollar bills in your glove box...happy RV'ing.

Perhaps I just created the shortest RV.net thread ever.

Regardless, sold everything! Bought us a pick-em truck and a fiver, begin our full-time journey in 7 days...with faith, a bank account and RV.net to get us through a year!

Headed north from Austin, TX.

Sad to say, time to sell to a good home.

Not all roads on the Interstate system are toll roads. The ones that do charge tolls are under the control of the state.
I think the EZ Pass is accepted on a lot of toll roads.

We got a I-Pass from Illinois and it is accepted in most of the NE states. Worked great. They do have some reciprocal agreements, just only in the NE.

Are there any toll roads in the Western States? I haven't seen any.

I'd rather have a federal fishing license.

Hang on tight ... I would expect to a lot more roads going to EZPass. PA wants to put it on RT 80 and other states are looking to add EZPass on some highways. Just another TAX on us.

We ran into toll roads on the Houston outerbelt interstate route. I can't think of any others. AFAIK the toll roads that exist in the East were built using State and local funding supported by issuing bonds and the tolls are (or were) used to pay off the bonds.

Between Tulsa and OKC and around OKC you will find tolls on I-44.

Out west we put tolls on the larger bridges, and have built "lexas lanes", as in pay a toll to drive in a open lane to pass slow commute traffic.

Orange County California has a toll road that branches off I-405 and runs through the hills and then hooks up with I-5. It's linked to the FasTrak system that is used for the bridges in the San Francisco bay area.

As mentioned in a previous post, the bay area has one or two interstates that have been converted to HOV lanes and toll lanes for single occupant vehicles. There is no cost for HOV/carpool qualifying vehicles and the single occupant vehicles are charged according to traffic volume on the rest of the road. (Cheaper during non-commute times and more expensive during commute times.) Single occupant vehicles must have the FasTrak transponder or risk a rather HUGE citation from the Highway Patrol. HOV vehicles are not required to have the transponder.
