Thru lanes are a great option for longer distance trips since customers can use these lanes to bypass local traffic. The added bonus is that customers pay the same toll in the thru lanes as they would in any other lane on the toll road.
Only two-axle vehicles equipped with an active and properly installed SunPass or another interoperable transponder can use the thru lanes. Although vehicles with three or more axles are not eligible in the thru lanes, transit buses, vanpools and school buses are allowed to use thru lanes as long as they have a SunPass or another interoperable transponder.
The best part about thru lanes is that customers pay the same toll they would pay to travel in all other lanes on the toll road. The toll is collected electronically with a SunPass or another interoperable transponder. Cash is not accepted in the thru lanes.
Pay attention to the overhead signs on the roadway. These signs will let you know where you can safely enter and exit the thru lanes. Please only use the dedicated entrances and exits.
Several separation techniques are used to keep thru lanes divided from the general lanes, including special road striping and 'tubular' markers.
For your safety, please do not cross over the 'tubular' markers.
Entrance and exit points in and out of the thru lanes are based on travel patterns in the area.
Drivers using the thru lanes must have an active SunPass or another interoperable transponder. Cash is not accepted. If you are a Georgia resident with an active Peach Pass or a North Carolina resident with an active NC Quick Pass, you can use the thru lanes with these transponders in your vehicle.

If your car breaks down in a thru lane, do not stop in the middle of the road. If possible, safely pull over to the side of the road and call the Florida Highway Patrol Communication Center at *FHP (*347). Depending on your needs, a Road Ranger or Florida Highway Patrol officer will be dispatched to help you.
Transit buses, vanpools and school buses are allowed to use thru lanes as long as they have a SunPass or another interoperable transponder. The exemption does not apply since customers pay the same toll in the thru lanes as they would in any other lane on the toll road.
