What is BCTRA?
BCTRA stands for the Brazoria County Toll Road Authority. It was established in 2003 by Brazoria County Commissioners Court to help plan, construct and operate the managed lanes within Brazoria County. It is comprised of a five-member board appointed by the Brazoria County Commissioners Court.
What is the BC Expressway?
The BC Expressway is the name of the managed lanes within the median of SH 288 between the Brazoria County Line at Clear Creek and CR 58. It is currently approximately 5 miles long and ties into the TxDOT (operated by BTG) managed lanes in Harris County within the median of SH 288. BCTRA only operates the 5 miles within Brazoria County.
Why does the pricing appear so different between the Harris County portion and the Brazoria County portion of the SH 288 managed lanes?
This is not an easy answer as there are many factors why the pricing is different.
Who should I contact if I have an issue?
What is an electronic tag?
Electronic tags are an electronic payment method that automatically pays for tolls as you drive on toll roads. Once you sign up for an electronic tag, the tag provider will then send a tag that you mount on your vehicle according to the provided instructions. When you drive on a tolled facility, an electronic reader will read the tag and charge your account for the transaction.
Where can I get an electronic tag?
The Brazoria County Toll Road Authority is not a tag provider. We accept several electronic tags on the BC Expressway. See below for a list of electronic tags that we accept. The most commonly used electronic tag in the Houston region is EZ TAG as it is offered locally, both online and at convenient EZ TAG store locations. You can visit each website to learn more and sign up for a tag.

Why did I receive a Toll Violation Invoice?
You may have received a Toll Violation Invoice for one of these reasons: 1) A vehicle registered in your name traveled the tollway without being registered to an EZ TAG account; 2) You have an EZ TAG, but your EZ TAG account balance is insufficient; or 3) You have an EZ TAG, but your vehicle information is incorrect on your account. Pursuant to the Texas Transportation Code, Chapter 284, the owner or renter of record (not necessarily the driver) of a vehicle that passes through a toll facility is responsible for payment of all tolls. If you feel you received a Toll Violation Invoice in error, please contact us at 281-875-3279. Failure to pay a toll is against the law. Failure to resolve violations may result in fines, referral to collections, withdrawal of your eligibility to renew your vehicle registration, and other legal measures as defined by Texas law. You can pay your Toll Violation Invoice, and any missed tolls that have not yet been invoiced online.
