  • Then have an on-board unit installed in your vehicle.

Special notes

If you wish, Toll Collect will also send you a monthly itemized statement. It lists the vehicle, route, travel time and other toll-related data. This allows you to accurately track the toll charges levied. You can download the itemized bill from Toll Collect's customer portal or receive it by mail on request.
The respective EEMD providers provide information on the range of corresponding services offered by EEMD providers.

Deadlines

The truck toll must be paid before using the toll road network.
