Physical Disabilities

Self-Pay Lanes

Handicap AccessibleThe Kansas Turnpike currently has Self-Pay lanes at many interchanges (see below):

Times of Self-Pay operation vary by interchange depending on the volume of traffic. The Cassoday, Council Grove/Osage City, and Tonganoxie-Eudora interchanges operate as Self-Pay continuously.

If a driver is unable to physically operate a Self Pay machine, we encourage them to obtain a K-TAG for payment convenience.

Any customer may apply for a K-TAG through this web site and receive a K-TAG for free. The customer will still be responsible for paying the standard K-TAG fares for each trip and abiding by all established KTA/K-TAG policies.
