How to pay toll on Alabama bridges?
You can use a prepaid systme called Alabama Freedom Pass or pay by Cash. You do not have an option to pay using a License plate video toll payment system such as Pay by Plate, Toll-by-plate, Tolls by Mail, Bill By Mail, ZipCash, etc. You can use also use Apple or Android phone to pay your toll at any Alabama Freedom Pass® network facility. Here is more information on Alabama Fredom Pass.
If you wish to pay tolls using Freedom Pass, you can open Freedom Pass account and use it for your travel in Alabama. As it is a prepaid system (you don't have to buy a transponder), and there is no service fee, you would not get any refund. If there is any account balance left in your card at the end of your trip, it would not be refunded. However, it has a very relaxed expiration period, and therefore you can use it for future travel through Alabama. If you are just travelling to Alabama for once, better option would be to pre-calculate toll charges for your trip using Alabama Trip Calculator and accordingly recharge your prepaid card to minimize any balance left at the end of the trip.
Alternatively, you can pay tolls with cash. It will cost you a bit more (and of course some inconvenience of waiting in cash lanes). Please use Tollguru Trip Calculator to see if all the toll plazas on your route accept cash and how much more you would need to pay if you pay tolls with cash instead of using Alabama Freedom Pass.
