No SunPass? No problem. The Florida Department of Transportation’s (DOT) TOLL-BY-PLATE program has you covered.
TOLL-BY-PLATE is a toll collection method that takes a photo of a vehicle’s license plate as it travels through a Turnpike tolling location. It then mails a monthly bill for the tolls, plus a $2.50 administrative charge, to the registered owner of the vehicle. So just drive!
To avoid the monthly administrative charge, sign up for a prepaid TOLL-BY-PLATE with a major credit card or debit card at www.tollbyplate.com or by calling 1-888-TAG-TOLL (888-824-8655). TOLL-BY-PLATE is an option, whether you are driving an out-of-state vehicle or a rental vehicle.
The Florida DOT’s TOLL-BY-PLATE program is available on the southern 47 miles of Florida’s Turnpike in Miami-Dade, where all-electronic, no-cash tolling is in effect.
The Miami-Dade Expressway Authority (MDX) and the Tampa-Hillsborough Expressway Authority (THEA) have their own toll-by-plate programs. Please visit these agencies’ websites for information and to pay tolls.
