On Thursday, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced SunPass Savings, a new toll discount program for customers who use Florida’s Turnpike System and toll facilities owned by FDOT. This rewards program will begin September 1st and run for 6 months and is estimated to provide $38 million in relief to SunPass commuters.

DeSantis also called on the Legislature to take necessary action during next year’s legislative session so more Florida families can benefit from toll relief.

The toll relief program will give customers with at least 40 paid transactions a month a 20% credit to their SunPass account. Customers with 80 or more paid transactions will receive a 25% credit each month. On average, customers using FDOT Turnpike facilities for their daily commute spend $50 per month on tolls. This program could save the average commuter $60 over the next six months, and commuters with more transactions will increase their savings. A map of included toll facilities and more information on the program can be found here.

“This program will help frequent SunPass customers keep more money in their pockets during a time of growing inflation,” said Governor Ron DeSantis. “Florida families who depend on these FDOT facilities for a timely commute to work will benefit from these savings. We will, of course, seek to enact greater savings for commuters in the next legislative session.”

The program applies to two-axle vehicles and is available to customers who use SunPass or other Florida transponders with accounts in good standing. The SunPass Prepaid Toll Program offers the lowest toll rate in Florida compared to the TOLL-BY-PLATE rate. The SunPass PRO® is interoperable with E-ZPass and is accepted in 18 states, with more to come.
