DOTD continues GeauxPass giveaway with extended customer service hours

Leeville, La. – The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) will continue its GeauxPass toll tag giveaway with extended customer service hours at the Golden Meadow Customer Service Center, located at 1821 South Alex Plaisance Blvd. (Hwy. 3235). Starting March 5-7, the office will be open from 5 a.m. to 4 p.m. to accommodate customers.

“We want to be sure that everyone, from the trucking industry to our resident daily commuters, can take advantage of this offer,” said Rhett Desselle, DOTD Assistant Secretary of Operations.

To open a GeauxPass Toll Tag account, drivers must come – in-person – to the customer service center, during business hours. The giveaway is not available online or by phone. One free toll tag per customer/vehicle will be given. Customers will need the following to qualify for the free toll tag.

· A permanent vehicle license plate number

· A minimum of $30 (Depending on the type of vehicle driven, a higher opening balance is recommended.)
