Convert to ExpressToll to lock in toll rates through 2020
The time is now for License Plate Toll (LPT) users to convert to an ExpressToll account to take advantage of locked-in toll rates on E-470 through 2020. In November 2018, E-470’s Board of Directors voted unanimously to continue the toll rate freeze first implemented on January 1st of that year. The decision keeps 2017 toll rates in place for ExpressToll drivers on E-470.
The original November 2017 decision of the Board to freeze toll rates through 2020, pending annual Board approval, marked the first time since the 47-mile user-financed roadway opened that tolls have been frozen. The decision also included a reduction of the ExpressToll rate at Toll Plaza C (between I-70 & Pena Boulevard) by $0.25. The reduced rate will stay in effect for 2019.
Conversely, License Plate Toll (LPT) rates are following the schedule that the E-470 Board adopted in 2017 to account for the higher cost of collection for those type of transactions. The LPT adjustments for E-470 went into effect on January 1, 2019. According to E-470 Executive Director Tim Stewart, the rate freeze and adjustments are about continuing to provide maximum value to loyal customers. “The decision to continue the toll rate freeze reflects the commitment of our Board and leadership to pass savings on to customers while being fiscally responsible.”
E-470 is the 75-mph toll road running along the eastern perimeter of the Denver metropolitan area. E-470 is a user-financed roadway, receiving no local, state or federal funds for financing, construction, operations or maintenance. E-470 is a political sub-division of the state governed by the E-470 Public Highway Authority Board composed of eight local governments including Adams, Arapahoe and Douglas counties, and the municipalities of Aurora, Brighton, Commerce City, Parker and Thornton. E-470 also operates ExpressToll, the all-electronic toll collection system available on E-470, Northwest Parkway, and Colorado’s Express Lanes.
