Use toll=* to indicate that a fee must be paid by general traffic to use a road, road bridge or road tunnel. Where only certain classes of vehicles are tolled then this can be indicated using toll:hgv=yes or toll:bicycle=no.

How to map

Only portions of way from which there is no "escape" except for a U-turn should be marked as toll. A toll authority may maintain sections of road that are free to drive on, but charge a toll to pass a certain point. In that case, only the area around said point should be marked as toll.

  • Where most traffic is required to pay a fee then use toll=yes and identify any classes that are not charged as exceptions toll:bicycle=no.
  • When the general condition is that vehicles are not charged then use toll=no together with over-rides for classes that are charged. For example: toll=no, toll:hgv=yes
  • toll=snowmobile - To use the unplowed track during wintertime with snowmobile, one has to pay (annual) fee to the operator. On summertime this same track/road is for general access and no fee.

Use barrier=toll_booth to map the actual booths where fees are collected.

Rendering

This does not render any differently on the Mapnik style. Perhaps this is less than ideal? What can be done?

The MapQuest U.S. rendering colors toll motorways and motorway_links green rather than blue.
