A Word From Our CEO


Welcome to the Florida’s Turnpike website. We are glad you are visiting and hope you will take an opportunity to explore our projects, business opportunities and traveler resources. We value you as a customer – one of the diverse residents, tourists and commercial freight drivers who see the benefits toll roads offer: time efficiency, convenient routes and more.

Throughout the website, you will discover our amenities, including our eight convenient service plazas, and resources, such as the toll calculator. This quick tool helps you to calculate trips based on your payment method. With SunPass, our prepaid toll program, you will save on tolls – nearly 25% compared to cash or TOLL-BY-PLATE rates. I invite you to visit our sister website to learn more about this innovative electronic toll program.

We recognize customers have a choice, so we exercise responsible and sound financial practices. Your toll dollars are invested into Florida’s Turnpike System to deliver critical infrastructure projects and to maintain our beautiful roadways.

Initially created by the Florida Legislature in 1953, and incorporated into the Florida Department of Transportation in 1969, our mission is to help meet the State’s growing transportation needs, ensuring value to customers, protecting investors and managing the Turnpike System in a business-like manner. For more on our rich history, go to our “About” section.

As we push toward major initiatives to improve safety, enhance mobility and inspire innovation, we promise to do all we can to make your travels along “the Less Stressway” that much more efficient.

From all of us here at Florida’s Turnpike, drive safely.
