SunPass is a tag transponder to pay tolls across Florida toll roads, express lanes and bridges electronically. You can buy a SunPass device online or from retail stores and activate it[1]. The account also lets you track your SunPass payment, add money to SunPass account, pay missed tolls, etc. Mount the device on your windshield and every time you pass through a SunPass toll plaza, the relevant toll amount will be deducted from the linked account; you need not stop to pay tolls.

It also works across the toll facilities of Georgia and North Carolina as well.

Calculate toll charges to travel across Florida and other states with SunPass using SunPass Toll Calculator.

Which states accept SunPass

SunPass is used primarily on state and local toll roads, bridges and other toll facilities in Florida. It is also accepted across Georgia and North Carolina.

SunPass is accepted in Florida, Georgia, and North Carolina along with PeachPass and NCQuickPass

Passes compatible with SunPass

SunPass is compatible with E-Pass and LeeWay. It means all toll roads and bridges that take one of the passes accept the other two as well. Georgia’s PeachPass and North Carolina’s NC Quick Pass are interoperable with SunPass, E-Pass, or LeeWay.

Sun Pass is not compatible with E-ZPass. However, SunPass Pro is compatible with E-ZPass - in all the 17 states where E-ZPass is accepted.

On the other hand, E-ZPass may be used on some Orlando toll roads, where the E-Pass is accepted. It may not be used on other Florida toll roads outside the Orlando area. You cannot use SunPass on roads that accept E-ZPass in north, roads in Texas, or in California.

SunPass is Florida’s Prepaid Toll Program. A standard SunPass toll tag works across three states: Florida, Georgia and North Carolina only. While SunPass PRO toll tag, a product of SunPass, works across eighteen states including Florida, Georgia and North Carolina.

Do I need a SunPass PRO if I already have a SunPass transponder

Depending on where you plan to travel, you should get a SunPass PRO or SunPass. If you have to drive within Florida, Georgia and North Carolina, a standard SunPass toll tag will do. But if you want to visit other east coast states (as listed above), you should buy (or upgrade your SunPass to) a SunPass PRO.

SunPass or Epass: Which is better for Florida toll roads

Both SunPass and E-Pass work across all the toll roads, bridges and express lanes of Florida, Georgia and North Carolina. But they are issued by different agencies: SunPass by the state Department of Transportation and E-Pass by Central Florida Expressway Authority (CFXway).

The SunPass transponder can be used in a rental vehicle. To do this, you would need to add the rental vehicle and license plate information to your SunPass account.
