2) How are the E-PASS and SunPass toll paying systems linked?
E-PASS and SunPass are prepaid toll collection systems that allow you to automatically pay tolls as you drive on any toll road in Florida, Georgia and North Carolina. This is because Florida toll agencies operate under an interoperability agreement. This agreement is to collect tolls on behalf of the owner of the road. For example, if an E-PASS customer travels on a FDOT/FTE owned toll road, when the customer goes through a tolling point, the tolling system forwards the transaction information to CFX. CFX charges the customer’s E-PASS account and forwards the toll amount to FDOT/FTE. The same process happens to SunPass customers that choose CFX owned toll roads.
Here’s how the interoperability works when functioning properly:
- E-PASS and SunPass electronically transfer toll transactions daily for processing.
- E-PASS customer toll transactions are posted to your E-PASS account and appear on your E-PASS billing statement.
- E-PASS customers receive only one monthly statement, an aggregation of all toll transactions incurred on any toll road where E-PASS is accepted.
- E-PASS customers are responsible for ensuring there are sufficient funds on their prepaid account to cover the cost of tolls, regardless of which tolling agency operates the toll road.
3) Where does my E-PASS work?
E-PASS works on all toll roads in Florida and is accepted everywhere SunPass and LeeWay are accepted. This includes toll roads operated by the Central Florida Expressway Authority (CFX), Tampa-Hillsborough Expressway Authority (THEA), Miami-Dade Expressway Authority (MDX), Florida Turnpike Enterprise (FTE) and the Cape Coral, Midpoint Memorial, and Sanibel Causeway bridges in Lee County.
E-PASS is also accepted in Georgia and North Carolina everywhere PeachPass and NC Quick Pass are accepted.
