Greater LA is not LA County alone, and OC is not its own metro area, no matter how much it wants to be. LA, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura Counties (minus the deserts) are all part of Greater Los Angeles

I was gonna say that as well, but as he said metro only. Even in LA CSA only South OC has fully functional toll roads.

Seattle only has one bridge (SR 520) but that can be avoided by taking I-90.

Well, I know that. But the four tolls roads only reach the tiniest portion of the metro, and as already stated, they are definitely supplementary and easy to avoid. I live right around the corner from an onramp, but that toll road didn't even exist when we moved here. We got along just fine with the 5 freeway, and many neighbors still don't use the toll road because they don't want to pay the fees and hardly feel inconvenienced.

Also Jacksonville doesn't have any tolls.

What about New Orleans? I've not encountered anythere either.
New Orleans has a one way $5 toll on the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway connecting Metairie with Mandeville on the Northshore. This connects two suburban parishes and isn't in the city itself but is part of the metropolitan area. Its a major commuter route and not a route tourists would usually take. I think there used to be tolls in the Belle Chasse tunnel but not anymore.

I don't think Kansas City, Salt Lake City, Colorado Springs, Oklahoma City or Memphis have any.

Would you consider Baton Rouge, Mobile, Charleston and Savannah to be major metros?

Louisiana has several bridges over 10 miles long that are free.

Not for this discussion. OP has defined major as metropolitan areas with pro sports teams.

OKC has the John Kilpatrick Turnpike and while SLC doesn't have toll roads per se, I-15 has Express Lanes that are free for HOV-2+ and motorcycles but single people are charged a toll, not sure if the OP is including that in their criteria.

Kansas City and Memphis have both already been mentioned up above as not having toll roads.

I would consider HOT lanes a toll road for this discussion -- unless they are really easy to avoid.

Doesn't the Kansas Turnpike section of I-70 start in the western KC suburbs?
