This mobile app started in California and has already expanded to Texas, Virginia, and Illinois. It will soon become available in every state, covering all 5,000 miles of toll roads in the US. With hundreds of tolling agencies operating in different states, Uproad is a convenient one-stop solution to make your tolling experience quicker and oftentimes, more cost-efficient.

The app recognizes when your drive on a toll road and sends you a notification.

Simultaneously, Uproad connects with tolling authorities, sending them your license plate number. The toll authority confirms the necessary toll amount for your car, and that amount is paid from your account balance.

When your balance gets low, the app automatically tops it up using one of the payment options that you link to it: Venmo, PayPal, Debit or Credit card. Alternatively, you can go with manual balance replenishments.

After the app is installed on your smartphone, you can add your vehicle and be on the road and paying tolls the next morning. Depending on where you drive, Uproad can also handle toll payments for the roads that you took a couple of days ago — if you have not met the toll agency payment deadline yet.

The Uproad app will help you save not only time and effort but sometimes also money through their lower, negotiated toll rates. Toll payments are delivered to the toll agency on time, helping you to avoid their high fines.

If needed, the app lets you can manage your business and private expenses separately and keep track of your toll expenses over time. With the help of the in-built calculator, you can see estimated toll costs before you hit the road. Plus, Uproad app allows you to plan your trip so that you can avoid tolls and take a free route.

The app allows you to link up to ten vehicles to your account. For each toll payment processed, it will require you to pay a small fee. If you are a frequent driver, you might consider getting a $19.99 yearly Premium membership which might greatly lower the fee.

If you have questions, you can contact Uproad customer service using the in-app chat and if you receive a toll agency bill, the team can help you troubleshoot that as well.

Uproad makes road trips more enjoyable and cost-efficient and all it takes is a quick download to access its multiple benefits!

There are over 5,000 miles of toll roads in the US, and if you don’t have a toll payment account or transponder, you no longer have to worry about driving them anymore. Just download a free Uproad app from the App Store or Google Play and let it manage your toll payments for you.

Started in California, this digital tolling solution expanded to Texas, Virginia, Illinois, and will soon be available in every state.

It’s quite simple. Once you download the app and set up your account, you can start using it to pay tolls by the next morning.  Other features, like a trip calculator to estimate toll costs, are available immediately.

To start paying tolls, first check their coverage map to ensure toll payment is available where you drive. Then, link up to 10 vehicles to your Uproad account and choose between the following payment methods: PayPal, Venmo, Credit, or Debit card.

Once your vehicle is activated, whenever you drive on a toll road, Uproad will pay the toll using your payment method on file.  For each payment, the app charges you a small transaction fee. If you travel on toll roads a lot, you can purchase an optional $19.99 yearly Premium membership to reduce your fees.

When you take a toll road, the app detects it right away and sends you a notification showing approximately how much the toll will cost. Then Uproad connects with the tolling authorities and pays their confirmed toll price, deducting the necessary amount from your account balance.

With this app, you won’t be late with payments and will avoid toll agency fines. When your balance gets low, the Autopay mode tops up your account balance using your preferred payment method. But you may change the mode if you prefer to confirm each financial transaction manually.

There are hundreds of tolling agencies in the USA. With Uproad you won’t need to interact with each of them individually — the app connects with the appropriate agency to sort out all of your required payments.

Another neat feature is that before you hit the road, you can calculate upcoming toll expenses allowing you to manage your travel budget more efficiently. Once the trip is over, you can categorize your business and personal travel expenses separately.

Compared to a transponder, Uproad is quicker and more user-friendly. For example, if you have questions, you can chat with the customer support team right through the app. And if you are used to paying cash for tolls, you won’t need to carry cash, avoid unfamiliar toll roads, or wait for toll bills in your mail.  You can just enjoy your trips and focus on driving — while the Uproad app takes care of your toll payments.
