Well, cash will be starting to be no longer be accepted on the Oklahoma Turnpike system starting in July with the Kilpatrick Turnpike. I guess that COVID sped up the cashless tolling in several states like California (Bay Area Toll Authority), Pennsylvania (Pennsylvania Turnpike system), Maryland, Illinois and now Oklahoma.

How are they going to convert the Turner and Will Rogers Turnpikes, which use a hybrid ticket-based/point tolling system for non-Pikepass drivers, in the form of receipts and refunds?  Similar to the issue with any ticket-based tolling system, this system would need to record every driver's entry point in order to issue the refunds accordingly where applicable.  The article doesn't explain anything about how that will work without paper receipts.

Is that even legal?  Seems like if you want payment, cash payment needs to be an option, even if it is legal just because of the large unbanked population.

How is less legal than the existing cashless facilities in Texas?

I don't think the ones in Texas are legal, either. Cash is legal tender for all debts. Since they don't let you turn around at the toll booth, once you take the entrance ramp, you have incurred a debt.
