IPASS Sticker Tags

The Illinois Tollway is transitioning to I-PASS Sticker Tags.


“Sticker tags are being adopted by toll agencies across the country and by the Illinois Tollway as they provide a convenient and reliable and travel experience for our customers.”

I-PASS Sticker Tags can be picked up at Illinois Tollway Customer Service Centers starting January 26 and will be available beginning in early February through online orders via the Illinois Tollway website or at a Jewel-Osco or RoadRanger retail location.

The introduction of I-PASS Sticker Tags is being done in collaboration with other E-ZPass agencies and will ensure that customers have continuity in service wherever they travel in the 19 states that are part of the E-ZPass consortium. 

Existing I-PASS transponders will continue to work on the Tollway and E-ZPass partners’ facilities including the Chicago Skyway. 

Customers will not be required to switch to the I-PASS Sticker Tag as long as they have a working transponder. As I-PASS transponders reach their expiration dates, the Illinois Tollway will send customers new I-PASS Sticker Tags as replacements. 

There is no deposit fee for I-PASS Sticker Tags. For customers with current transponders, the $10 transponder deposit will be transferred into their pre-paid toll accounts once a new I-PASS Sticker Tag is registered to the account. 

Customers will be asked to dispose of old I-PASS transponders in an environmentally sound way, either by returning them to the Illinois Tollway or by going to the Earth911 website where they can search by "lithium-ion batteries" and enter their zip code to find many convenient recycling locations.  

I-PASS Sticker Tags are required to be mounted to a vehicle’s windshield near the rearview mirror, and like license plate or city stickers, they are not designed to be moved between vehicles. There is no battery, and they last until removed from the vehicle.

I-Pass Assistance for Income Eligible

The Illinois Tollway’s I-PASS Assist program helps income-eligible individuals and families realize the benefits of I-PASS.


  • Passenger vehicles save 50% on tolls 
  • Easily manage vehicles and travel costs 
  • Seamless travel on the Illinois Tollway

Shred Event at Fremont Township

We have scheduled a document shredding event for Saturday, June 22 from 8:30 am til 11:30 am. You will enter through the highway department at 22376 Erhart Road.

You may bring the equivalent of 3 boxes to shred. Staples and paper clips are fine. We will not accept any binders or hanging file folders or electronic items because they catch on fire in the truck.

The most efficient way is to place your items in a paper grocery bag. No plastic bags. To keep the line moving, you will not be able to exit your car and watch the shredding.

This shredding event is for documents only. Please recycle your coupons, magazines and junk mail with your weekly recycling. They will not be accepted.

Pop your trunk and we will take the items. Do not leave your car.

We will not accept any binders or hanging file folders or electronic items because they catch on fire in the truck. If the truck fills up before 11:30, the event will be over.

We look forward to seeing you and appreciate your patience.
