Florida drivers can save on toll money with new SunPass program
SunPass drivers who commute on the Florida Turnpike or other state-controlled highways will soon receive discounts under a temporary rebate program.
What's happening: The SunPass Savings program, which Gov. Ron DeSantis announced Thursday, will give a 20% credit to drivers who pay 40 tolls via the prepaid toll program within a calendar month. Drivers who pay 80 tolls will get a 25% credit.
- The program, which will return $40 million to customers statewide, will start Sept. 1 and run for six months, DeSantis said.
Zoom in: The following South Florida highways are eligible: the Turnpike (SR 91/SR 821), the Sawgrass Expressway (SR 869) and I-75 Alligator Alley.
- The credit will also apply to tolls on express lanes only for I-95, I-75, I-595 and Palmetto (SR 826).
What we're watching: DeSantis, who's up for re-election, used the announcement to tease a "historic" tax relief package he said the Legislature would take up next spring.
- He said state lawmakers will consider more toll credits in the March 2023 session.
