Using Our Expressways

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 Lake, Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties, area attractions, employment centers and airports in Sanford and Orlando.

User fees support the CFX system, with all tolls collected on our expressways going toward maintenance and operations.

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 or NC Quick Pass transponders are encouraged to use express lanes.

On-and-Off Ramps

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.

Cash-Paying Customers

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.

Roadside Assistance

Road Rangers patrol CFX expressways offering travelers free assistance with minor breakdown repairs. They work seven days a week from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Dial *FHP (347) and ask for Road Ranger assistance.
