In-Person Toll Payment Temporarily Suspended
The Mobility Authority is closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and doing our part to help slow the spread of coronavirus, beginning with a temporary closure of our in-person customer service centers. Effective close of business March 18, both the RMA Toll Center at 14050 Summit Drive  and all TxTag Customer Service Centers are closed until further notice.

Online and Phone-based Customer Service Continues
Customer service and bill payment options remain available online at and by phone at (833) 762-8655. Customers may experience longer than normal wait times to speak to a customer service representative due to the increased phone demand. We are striving to keep our call and response times as short as possible for our valued customers, while following the guidance from the CDC and WHO and taking the necessary precautions to protect the health and safety of our employees and customers. We appreciate your patience as we work to navigate this unprecedented global public health crisis.

Live Stream Our March 25 Board Meeting
We are encouraging our partners and the general public to participate in social distancing and live stream the March 25 Board of Directors meeting.

Practice Social Distancing 
Our agency’s mission is to deliver greater mobility for Central Texans, and our efforts continue even during this uncertain time. In fact, it’s more important than ever that during a global health crisis we have access to infrastructure that preserves and maintains our collective quality of life and safety. As we forge ahead with our mission, we’re leveraging technology to stay connected to co-workers, partners and the public, while following the guidance to practice social distancing.

Tailoring Public Engagement Tactics to Current Constraints 
Robust engagement with the communities we serve is the foundation upon which we build meaningful mobility solutions. We make it a priority to incorporate community input into our projects at all stages of development, from the early stages of feasibility and environmental, though construction, and long after a new road is open to traffic. It’s part of our commitment to ensuring that the infrastructure we develop meets the needs and expectations of the community in a way that respects local values and historic and aesthetics preferences—all while delivering on the need for greater mobility.

We remain committed to meaningful public engagement even during this pandemic. However, we recognize that our community engagement tactics will need to be adjusted to meet the constraints of this uncertain time. In that vein, we’ll be introducing even more innovative virtual and online experiences that deliver the information you need while soliciting the input we need back from you. We look forward to working collaboratively with all of you in a way that preserves public health and well-being.

Did you know that March is Women’s History Month? The congressionally designated time to honor the many achievements of women on a national, state and local basis. In support of this national observance, the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority joins other institutions in celebrating the vital role of women in American history. We applaud the accomplishments of the many women working in transportation and seek to help amplify women’s voices around the country and around the world.

We're particularly proud of our Director of Government Relations and Communications--Dee Anne Heath, and our Director of Operations--Tracie Brown. Both have been honored with awards from the Women’s Transportation Seminar (WTS) Heart of Texas Chapter over the past year, and recognized for being outstanding role models and contributing to the advancement of women and minorities in the transportation industry.

Both Dee Anne and Tracie lead mostly female teams and are well-respected by their industry peers for their thoughtful and measured approach to leadership and management. These women continue to mentor the more junior members of our industry, and despite their expertise, remain students of the field, constantly seeking out career development and learning opportunities to maximize their contributions to the agency.
On behalf of the Mobility Authority, we applaud you for all you do to advance the careers of women in our male-dominated industry!
