Maybe a dumb question, but how do trucking companies work the reimbursement for tolls? Do they add it into your paycheck for direct deposit?

My company has ezpass so that covers most of the rolls. The only toll I have had to pay was the Oklahoma toll and you scan the receipt in with the rest of your paperwork and they add it to your check.

Bottom line: you don't pay your tolls from your pocket. Most companies have transponder passes for common toll roads. The Prepass unit handles many across the USA. Or your company can get you a transponder for a particular road or bridge you use often.

Finally, if you have to pay the troll, keep the receipt, send it in when you scan your bills. It should show up in your next paycheck.

Thanks for the info. I have an ezpass but it does not work in Oklahoma or Florida.

I know about Oklahoma - I asked for and got an OK pass.

Receipts are like money. There's little personal expense for the driver in getting a load delivered. Turn in receipts and it's in your next paycheck.

the Oklahoma pike pass also works in Kansas where the ezpass also does not work. For Florida you need a surpass.

Werner supplies all drivers with both the ezpass and the ok pike pass. Drivers like me who live in Florida can get the sunpass because we go to Florida on a somewhat regular basis.

I'm sure most of the other big companies do something similar.

Out of idle curiosity - do these toll plazas take debit cards, or fuel cards?

I know some of the bridges in the NY/Tri-State area can be quite expensive for a 5-axle rig. Obviously the company will reimburse (unless they SPECIFIED a route to AVOID TOLLS - and the driver chose the toll route) . A trip in/out of the NE, can run over $200 with bridges.

How does a driver with low "personal funds" - deal with a toll scenario that may exceed what they have available (absent a company issued toll pass).

Rick, I've run most of the country repeatedly, and just about any large carrier will use the EZ Pass. That will cover most tolls, NY is included in that scenario. There are a few times where I had to "pony-up" for my tolls, and those places are the ones that have been mentioned in this thread - Oklahoma, Florida, a few places in Texas. I don't think I have ever had to spend more than forty bucks out of pocket on any weekly set of trips, and they were always reimbursed immediately on my next weeks pay check.

A person who is low on funds, needs to be able to keep a little money on hand for tolls, but not a small fortune. Most of them will take a debit card.

I find that often times my companies logistics software will route me around toll roads that we are not set up with for payment, but if it is much more convenient for me to take the toll road then I will. No one has ever questioned my decision to re-route myself if it were a smarter way to go to keep things moving in a timely manner - they reimburse the toll payment with no questions asked.
