News, stories and insight from inside the Illinois Tollway.

Everything Customers Need to Know

As a precaution against the spread of the coronavirus, all toll collection is being handled via I-PASS, E-ZPass and the Tollway’s online payment portal. In addition, our in-person Customer Service Centers and the Illinois Tollway Customer Call Center have closed until further notice.

During this time, existing violations have been placed on hold, and grace period tolling has been extended; however, customers should pay for missed tolls below to avoid future violations. Further, here are the top things you should know as a customer:

Missed Tolls

If you do not have an I-PASS and missed a toll - within 7 days of travel, calculate your route using the trip calculator.  After seven days during the extended grace period use the Search By Plate feature to look up and pay your missed tolls by plate to avoid a future violation.

All existing violations are on hold. If you’ve received a violation notice, as of March 15 the status of that violation has been suspended until full operations resume. Violation questions should be held until our customer service call center resumes operation.
