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 I-595 in Ft. Lauderdale to the I-75 interchange in Wildwood.
