Default Ok toll expense???

Hi. Sorry to post a lame thread, but we are going through Oklahoma on our way from Indiana to California and I see on the map that OK is the only state I will have to pay tolls in. How much will it be to go all the way through??? Coming in through the northern part from Missouri and will go across the state and through OK City as well. Thanks for your help!

PS- Beside's the site in OK City, what other things on the way are worth checking out?

I think it will cost $3.50 from Tulsa to OKC, and $2.00 on the Kilpatrick from OKC to I-40. That's for a car with no trailer.

If you are not in a big hurry, you could go the Route 66 tourist drive from Tulsa to OKC.

Sadly there's probably few who can tell you because most of us have pike passes I would have no clue how much it is.

What is a Pike Pass?

Also I am driving to Tulsa to have a look around in the next couple of months, can anybody tell me what the toll will be from Wichita to the Oklahoma border?

From Wlchita to the southern terminal in KS is $2.20 or $2.35, depending on where you get on the turnpike.

A Pike Pass is an prepaid electronic thing you have in your car that automatically charges the tolls as you drive through. That way you don't have to stop. It is convenient if you are using the turnpike all the time, but wouldn't be worth it for someone just passing through.

Hey thanks everyone! I can handle a few bucks, even up to $10 or so. I was asking because up north here our tolls are pricey. Thought I'd be looking at big bucks. Anyway, I'm looking forward to going through your state!

Thank you, we have the same type of set up for our tolls in Colorado, everybody that uses them seems to love them, I however have had no need at this point.

The Will Rogers Turnpike (I-44 from Missouri to Tulsa) is $3.50; the Turner Turnpike (I-44 from Tulsa to Oklahoma City) is also $3.50. (The little electronic gizmos come with a 15-cent discount.) If you bypass Oklahoma City on the John Kilpatrick, it's $2.

I've promised to get myself a PikePass when and if they make them compatible with other toll systems - either the EZPass back east, or at the very least the KPass in Kansas.

Hay peggyD,

Is this the same famous Route 66 of the old days? I've always wanted to take that road, if not for anything else then just for its nostalgic purpose.

I remember hearing my Dad talk about driving that highway when he was younger as a over the road truckdriver.

It is the famous Route 66. People come from all over the world to drive on Route 66. It is a scenic drive with a lot of historic buildings, and some of the best diners and barbeque joints ever Here's one link, there are lots of others.
