Pay By Plate from the Illinois Tollway allows customers without an I-PASS Account or E-ZPass transponder to safely and securely pay unpaid tolls. While I-PASS and E-ZPass are still the most cost-effective way to pay tolls, Pay By Plate is built on the I-PASS payment platform giving you a range of payment options while ensuring you avoid costly fines and fees, all without a transponder.
Whether you just traveled or are about to travel, simply provide your plate, payment and dates of travel and you're all set.
What can I do with Pay By Plate?
- Already miss a toll? No problem. For up to 14 days after you’ve traveled, you can now enter your vehicle and payment information into the Pay By Plate system, and you’ll have the peace of mind knowing you’ll avoid added fines and fees. TIP - If you’ve already traveled, be sure to backdate your plate information to reflect your beginning date of travel.
- Renting or Borrowing a Vehicle? If you’re in a rented, borrowed or temporary vehicle and you do not have an I-PASS or E-ZPass transponder, Pay By Plate is right for you. Simply enter the plate, payment and dates of travel within 14 days of your initial travel and you’re all set.
- Managing Multiple Vehicles? You can do that on Pay By Plate, too! While I-PASS is the most cost-effective way to manage your vehicles, you can add multiple vehicles and manage your payment methods within the Pay By Plate system.
