The Oklahoma Turnpike Authority has launched a new way for people to pay turnpike tolls.

The PlusPass mobile app allows drivers to manage their accounts on mobile devices and to pay tolls via credit card, PayPal, or with cash.

Drivers utilizing PlusPass will see savings of roughly 25% compared to PlatePay customers, the OTA said in a release. That’s because the app eliminates costs of printing and mailing invoices.

PlusPass gives drivers who prefer to use cash the ability to take their phone to a participating retailer to load the app with up to $500. Participating retailers include CVS, Walgreens and Family Dollar stores.

“We are excited to provide convenient options for those who prefer mobile or cash payments,” OTA Deputy Director Joe Echelle said. “The PlusPass app solves several challenges as electronic toll collection expands across the state and country.”

Motorists can sign up for PlusPass by downloading the app, registering their email address and adding a picture of their license plate. The PlusPass app is free and available in the Apple App store and Google Play store.
