New payment options for Pikepass cash customers

LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - If you have an Oklahoma Pikepass and you pay cash to refill it, you have a lot of new options when it comes to where you can pay.
 

Right now, you can't go to a Pikepass office in southwest Oklahoma, because there's not one. If you mail a check, it may take days for your account to update. Pikepass has now teamed up with the PayNearMe network, which includes payment locations like Family Dollar, ACE Cash Express and more. The Oklahoma Turnpike Authority says it receives approximately $2 million in cash payments every month. 

You may not even need a Pikepass or cash to travel on some Oklahoma turnpikes after next year. OTA is looking to implement an all new system in 2017, PlatePay. Basically instead of having to stop to give a toll worker cash or throw change in a basket, cameras will take a picture of your license plate and send you a bill in the mail. Again, OTA wants to start this next year at selected toll plazas.
