Drivers using the tolled bridges connecting Louisville and Southern Indiana have a new option for paying tolls.
Pay by plate allows drivers who do not have a prepaid account and transponder to pay tolls owed online, before receiving an invoice.
Here’s how it works:
Wait 3-5 days after crossing a tolled bridge for the trip to post to the system (trips for out-of-state drivers may take longer to post).
Go to riverlink.com and click pay tolls.
Under Pay by Plate, enter the license plate number, state and the last six digits of the vehicle identification number (VIN).
View tolls owed and pay with a valid credit card, debit card, or ACH.
Pay by Plate is another option for drivers to pay their toll, after crossing a tolled roadway or bridge.
If the trip hasn’t yet posted, drivers can enter their preferred contact information and will be notified of transactions that post in the next 30 days. Drivers can choose to be notified by text or email by providing a cell phone number or email address.
Drivers without prepaid accounts and transponders pay higher toll rates, $4.10, $7.18 and $12.30, depending on vehicle classification. Pay-by-plate toll rates are the same as pay by mail.
To pay the lowest toll rates and save more than $2 per crossing, drivers need to set up a prepaid account and get a transponder. Accounts can be opened online, by phone or in person at a customer service center. RiverLink local transponders are free for drivers opening an account, one per registered vehicle. Transponders are mailed, free of charge, to account holders.
RiverLink is all-electronic tolling with no slowing, no stopping and no lines.
