Yep.  Also, in the UK, carries legal implications.  Legislation is required
to require tolls on a
public highway.

That's how I'd use it.  Of course, ferries provide a ferry service, so fee
could be used.  But I'd go
with something else: fare.  We don't talk of rail tolls or rail fees, we
talk of rail fares.  We don't talk
of air tolls or air fees, we talk of air fares.  From OED online: "The
money paid for a journey on
public transport."
