SunPass Savings - New Program Will Provide Toll Discounts for Commuters
Tallahassee - Thursday August 25, 2022: Governor DeSantis announced the launch of “SunPass Savings,” a new toll discount program for customers who use Florida’s Turnpike System and toll facilities owned by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT).
The program will begin September 1, and run for 6 months.
The toll relief program will give customers with at least 40 paid transactions a month a 20% credit to their SunPass account. Customers with 80 or more paid transactions will receive a 25% credit each month.
“This program will help frequent SunPass customers keep more money in their pockets during a time of growing inflation,” said Governor Ron DeSantis. “Florida families who depend on these FDOT facilities for a timely commute to work will benefit from these savings."
On average, customers using FDOT Turnpike facilities for their daily commute spend $50 per month on tolls. This program could save the average commuter $60 over the next six months, and commuters with more transactions will increase their savings. A map of included toll facilities and more information on the program can be found here.
It is estimated that it will provide $38 million in relief to SunPass commuters.
Additionally, the Governor DeSantis called on the Legislature to take necessary action during next year’s legislative session so more Florida families can benefit from toll relief.
The program applies to two-axle vehicles and is available to customers who use SunPass or other Florida transponders with accounts in good standing.
The SunPass Prepaid Toll Program offers the lowest toll rate in Florida compared to the TOLL-BY-PLATE rate. The SunPass PRO® is interoperable with E-ZPass and is accepted in 18 states, with more to come.
SunPass is the prepaid electronic toll collection program operated by Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise, the toll agency for the state.
