Toll Collectors


Wages for full-time toll collectors vary with the area and state where the collector is employed. Average earnings vary by state and municipality. For example, reports that toll collectors in New York City earned median salaries of $33,000, while collectors in Harris County, Texas, earned $27,000, with a top salary of $41,000. Managerial responsibilities also increase compensation. Part-time employees are usually paid by the hour and may begin at the minimum wage ($7.25 an hour, or $15,080 per year). Toll collectors who are members of a union generally earn more than those who are not. Collectors who work the later shifts may also earn more, and most employees earn time-and-a-half or double time for overtime or holiday work.
