Enjoy the Ride
The Central Florida Expressway Authority operates a network of expressways, offering motorists easy and unimpeded access to downtown Orlando, suburban and urban communities in Brevard, Lake, Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties, area attractions, employment centers and airports in Sanford and Orlando.
Our world-class expressways feature state-of-the-art electronic toll collection express lanes and toll plazas staffed by friendly and helpful attendants. We’ve also designed our expressways to include landscaping in medians and along roadsides to make for a more scenic driving experience.
Traditional Toll Plazas & Modern Express Lanes
CFX operates two types of collection systems: traditional toll plazas and modern express lanes. Toll plazas service cash-paying and electronic-payment customers while express lanes serve only electronic-payment customers. By using express lanes, electronic-payment motorists avoid slowdowns and backups at toll plazas. Motorists using E-PASS, SunPass, LeeWay, PeachPass, E-ZPass or NC Quick Pass transponders are encouraged to use express lanes on CFX roads.
E-PASS is CFX’s electronic toll-collection system. It allows customers to automatically pay tolls at a discount with a free E-PASS Sticker, CollegePass, or Uni (formerly E-PASS Xtra) transponder, without stopping. Each time an E-PASS customer passes through a toll point where E-PASS is accepted, an antenna electronically deducts the toll from the motorist’s E-PASS account. A record of all transactions is included in the customer’s monthly statements and customers can easily manage their E-PASS account online from a smartphone, tablet, or desktop.
E-PASS is accepted on all toll roads and most bridges in Florida, Georgia and North Carolina. You also can use E-PASS to pay for parking at Orlando International Airport. Uni, formerly E-PASS Xtra, lets you travel nonstop through 18 states with just one toll account.
Reload is a drive-up service where motorists can get a FREE E-PASS Sticker and add funds (Reload) to their E-PASS account using cash or credit/debit card. The Reload Lanes are located in Orange County on both east- and west-bound lanes of State Road 408 at the Conway toll plaza, as well as both north- and south-bound lanes of State Road 417 at the John Young Parkway toll plaza and State Road 429 at the Forest Lake Main toll plaza. The service is open seven days a week from 6 AM to 8 PM.
If you just got your new E-PASS at the Reload Lane, please visit ReloadEPASS.com and log in with the account number and payment ID on the receipt the attendant gave you. Enter the requested information – like your email, vehicle information – to complete enrollment to avoid potential fees and get additional E-PASS customer benefits. If you have questions, please call an E-PASS customer service representative at 407-823-7277 or 1-800-353-7277 from Monday through Friday, 8 AM to 6 PM.
Toll plazas at on- and off-ramps have one lane for electronic and Pay By Plate customers and one lane for cash customers. The cash lane requires exact change in coins. Bills are not accepted and receipts are not available.
E-ZPass Accepted on CFX toll roads
E-ZPass is accepted on the Central Florida Expressway Authority’s 125-mile toll road network in Metro Orlando which includes downtown Orlando and surrounding communities. See roadway map below where E-ZPass is accepted. CFX is the only toll operator in Florida that accepts E-ZPass. E-ZPass users that travel out of network and are unable to pay with cash may receive Toll-By-Plate invoices from other Florida tolling agencies.
For customers who travel throughout Florida and in other states along the eastern seaboard, the Central Florida Expressway Authority, in partnership with E-ZPass, released a multi-state toll transponder called Uni (formerly E-PASS Xtra) that works everywhere E-ZPass and E-PASS are accepted. *E-PASS Xtra is no longer available for purchase. All E-PASS Xtra transponders will continue to work throughout 18 states and be fully supported as part of the E-PASS family of products.
When approaching a toll plaza, be prepared to stop as traffic can back up with vehicles slowing down to pay with cash. If you’re paying with exact change, please have coins ready to deposit in the toll basket. If you’re paying with bills, please have cash out to hand to the toll plaza attendant. Bills larger than $20 are not accepted. If you don’t have any bills under $20, the attendant will issue you an Insufficient Fund Notice, requiring you to submit payment in the form of a check or money order to the Central Florida Expressway Authority, P.O Box 585070, Orlando, FL 32858-5070. Please include the license plate number and state issued on the check.
Road Rangers patrol CFX expressways offering travelers free assistance with minor breakdown repairs. They work seven days a week from 6 AM to 8 PM Dial *FHP (347) and ask for Road Ranger assistance.
