Know Before You Go: New Florida Turnpike Toll Plaza Procedures in South Florida:

Florida's Turnpike Extension (FTE) has introduced an all-electronic toll system (no physical cash tollbooths) on the Turnpike between Milepost 0 in Florida City and Milepost 47 at the Miami-Dade/Broward County line.

What does this mean for U.S., Canadian and international visiting motorists who travel in and out of the Florida Keys? The cash-less system is intended to continue making toll roads on this stretch of the Turnpike safe and efficient to drive, as well as more convenient for travelers. Most rental car companies have programs that allow customers to use lanes that utilize SunPass, a pre-paid toll program already in place for travel on toll roads. The tolls plus a minimal service fee are charged to the credit card used to rent the vehicle.

Resident motorists without a SunPass have an alternative method to pay tolls without stopping. Through the TOLL-BY-PLATE system, a picture will be taken of the registered driver's license plate and a monthly invoice will be mailed to the vehicle's registered owner. A $2.50 administrative fee will apply, per invoice which is billed on a monthly basis.

Canadian citizens can purchase SunPass by ordering online at www.SunPass.com, contacting the SunPass Customer Service Center at 1-888-865-5352 or by purchasing at thousands of retail locations, including Florida Welcome Centers.

For more information about the all-electronic open road tolling on Florida's Turnpike, travelers can call the public information office at 1-800-749-PIKE (7453) or visit the website at www.FloridasTurnpike.com/all-electronictolling.
