Pay By Plate from the Illinois Tollway allows you to safely and securely pay unpaid tolls if you travel without an I-PASS transponder and you do not have an IPASS account. While I-PASS is still the best, most cost-effective way to pay tolls on the Illinois Tollway, 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 license plate details, dates of travel, and a payment method and you're all set.
