Florida Toll Booths are Quicker and Cheaper

Winter 2009 CSANews Issue 73  |  Posted date : Dec 12, 2009.Back to list

Snowbirds lined up to pay at Florida's many road-toll booths have watched enviously as the "locals" zip through the fast SunPass commuter lanes without stopping.

That has now changed. Visiting motorists, including Canadians, can purchase the new SunPass Mini sticker transponder which is easily affixed to the inside of your windshield by the rear-view mirror. The SunPass Mini starter package costs US$4.99 and is available at CVS pharmacies, Publix supermarkets and at Florida Turnpike toll plaza gift shops and gas stations.

To activate your sticker, you can phone the toll-free number, 1-888-865-5352 which is valid from Canada or your Canadian cellular phone. When you activate your SunPass, the cost of the sticker is credited back to your account …so essentially, it is free.

You can arrange to have your SunPass balance replenished by a predetermined amount automatically when your account balance falls below a pre-set limit (i.e. $10.00) by leaving a credit card number on file with SunPass. Or, if you prefer not to leave your credit card number on file, you can receive e-mail notification that your account balance is low.

Automobiles participating in the SunPass program (Mini or regular transponder) receive a 25% discount at most toll plazas.
