The 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 pay the standard $15 purchase price, but if they have a physical condition that makes it challenging to use a Self Pay machine, they may apply for a K-TAG at no purchase cost by first contacting the Kansas ADA Coordinator’s Office at 785-296-1389. If the ADA office makes an appropriate recommendation, KTA will provide a K-TAG at no purchase cost, but 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.

All six service areas have reserved parking, wheelchair access ramps and specially designed restroom facilities. Several of the newer service areas include family restrooms to accommodate those needing additional assistance as well. To learn more, visit services areas.
There are historical markers at some of the Service Areas that show areas of interest. The Turnpike crosses the historic Santa Fe Trail near milepost 155 and the Oregon Trail near milepost 189.
