How a business account works

Once your account is set up, you can log in to your account maintenance and specify the number of business account charge cards you would like to receive. These cards will be mailed to the account manager and may be distributied to your employees as needed. Employees may use these cards to pay for any fare or multi-ride product available at  vehicle and passenger tollbooths.


Each month we will send you an invoice via email.

  • The invoice will display all account activity including any charges, payments and adjustments if applicable.
  • Invoices for these accounts are payable by check only.

Buy a ticket online with a business account

You will be provided a business account number and password to access ticket purchasing.

  • You can buy tickets for passengers and all vehicle types under 40 feet in length.
  • Tickets will be emailed as an attachment to the address on file, and can be sent as needed to your employees.
  • Online tickets may be printed or scanned from a mobile device.
  • Online purchases will be added to your monthly invoice.

A business account is not required for trucks that are:

  • Wide - More than 8 feet, 6 inches
