The Fort Bend County Toll Road Authority (FBCTRA), also called the Fort Bend Grand Parkway Toll Road Authority (FBGPTRA), operates toll roads in Fort Bend County and is headquartered at 1 Fluor Daniel Dr in Sugar Land in the U.S. state of Texas.

History[edit]

Created in November 2005.

The FBCTRA uses the EZ TAG system, which is interoperable with the TxTag issued by the Texas Department of Transportation and the TollTag issued by the North Texas Tollway Authority. The authority has no current plans to accept any other tolling agencies tags.[1]

In July 2008 the authority converted the Fort Bend Parkway to EZ-Tag only, completely eliminating cash transactions for the agency and resulting in reduced toll collection and maintenance costs.
