What is the difference between Active membership and Associate membership?

Your membership type is determined by the nature of your primary business. Active Members are organizations that own and operate toll bridges, tunnels and turnpikes. Associate and Sustaining Members do not own or operate toll facilities but rather companies or individuals that supply products or services to the tolling industry. Read a complete description of Membership in Article II of the IBTTA ByLaws.

Once my company joins IBTTA, do all my employees have access to member benefits?

Yes! Encourage your employees to create their own Account Profile so they can take advantage of all IBTTA Membership Benefits. An account will provide access to member-only resources on the website and allow for online event registration.

Who can serve on the Board?

IBTTA’s Bylaws state that only Active Members (owners and operators) may sit on the Board of Directors. However, Associate and Sustaining Members may serve on IBTTA Committees, Task Forces and Meeting Planning Groups and have significant influence on the direction of the Association through these roles.

What is the makeup of the Board of Directors and how long is a board member’s term?

The Board of Directors is comprised of five officers and 20 directors. Officers serve a one-year term, and directors serve staggered four-year terms.

How does IBTTA involve Non-U.S. members?

IBTTA has significant representation from European toll operators, as well as members from Australia, South Africa and Japan. Non-U.S. members possess a wide range of experience in approaching political, economic and physical problems for sustaining toll agencies. Expanding membership outside the U.S. is a priority and IBTTA has created an International Task Force to expand our global interests. IBTTA “Ambassadors” help promote IBTTA within their region and increase engagement in their community.


IBTTA includes international perspectives at meetings and webinars and sends member delegations to meet with counterparts in numerous countries. Of significant note is that IBTTA has a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with ASECAP, the European Association of Operators of Toll Road Infrastructures, that fosters ongoing cooperation with Europe.

Does IBTTA lobby and advance a legislative agenda?

Yes. IBTTA closely monitors and reports on toll-related legislation and policy at the federal and state levels, with the goal of creating a political environment that is more favorable to tolling. IBTTA asserts the industry viewpoint with key decision makers through position papers, targeted mailings and events that call on public officials to examine expanded use of tolling and road pricing as effective highway finance solutions.
