All Turnpike tolls are collected electronically between Exit 47 and Exit 1 and at Milepost 0X in Miami-Dade County, and on the Sawgrass Expressway in Broward County, west of Fort Lauderdale. Motorists use either SunPass or TOLL-BY-PLATE, and everyone pays tolls without having to stop.
SunPass uses credit-card-size electronic devices, called SunPass transponders, which attach to the inside of a car's windshield. When a car equipped with SunPass goes through a tolling location, the transponder sends a signal and the toll is deducted from the customer’s account. SunPass customers always pay the lowest toll rates available.
If you are not a SunPass customer and encounter an all-electronic tolling location, don’t worry; you will automatically become a Turnpike TOLL-BY-PLATE customer. The tolling cameras will take a photo of the vehicle’s license plate and a monthly bill for the tolls, plus a $2.50 administrative charge, will be mailed to the registered owner of the vehicle.
Keep in mind that you can still use cash to pay tolls on Florida’s Turnpike, from north of the Golden Glades interchange in northern Miami-Dade to the I-75 interchange in Wildwood.
