Paying For Tolls

Florida’s Turnpike System roads are constructed, operated and maintained through toll revenues collected from our customers. Every vehicle pays a toll that is generally based on the distance of the trip and the number of axles on the vehicle. Customers can choose to pay their tolls electronically using SunPass (the preferred method), another interoperable transponder, cash or TOLL-BY-PLATE. Customers can determine in advance how much a trip will cost in Florida by using the Toll Calculator. Select the boxes below to learn more details about tolls.

Well Established

Toll roads have existed for more than 2,700 years. In the U.S., toll roads and bridges have existed since colonial times. Florida’s Turnpike opened in 1957 as the Sunshine State Parkway.

Safe and Well Maintained

Toll roads are better maintained and safer than non-toll roads because of a steady revenue stream. You are paying for reliability and safety. Many toll roads, such as Florida’s Turnpike have convenient service plazas with food, fuel and a place to stretch your legs.


Toll roads are being used to advance technologies that can make highways smarter and faster for everyone. Toll roads are utilized in the operation of connected, automated, shared and electric vehicles, truck platooning and many other “smart road” innovations.

Fast and Efficient

Florida Managed Lanes provide congestion relief on interstates and toll roads. Customers can use the optional managed lanes when they want a more predictable travel time. Managed lanes are designed with a limited number of entrance and exit points to serve longer, more regional trips.


Many tolls on roads, bridges and tunnels are now collected electronically, making it easier to pay. There’s no delay while you look for cash to pay a toll. With an electronic transponder like SunPass, you can zip through toll lanes without having to slow down or stop.

True User Fee

A toll is a true user fee. It is not a tax! You only pay for a toll when you choose to use a toll road. If you do not drive on the toll road, then you do not have to pay.
