Many rental car customers traveling on Florida’s toll roads and bridges are now able to utilize ‘SunPass Only’ lanes to pay their tolls, even without a SunPass transponder.
Rental car customers in Central Florida also can use the EPass lanes on toll roads operated by the Orlando- Orange County Expressway Authority (OOCEA), and will soon be able to use the LeeWay toll lanes in Lee County.
Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise has entered into contractual agreements with American Traffic Solutions and Rent A Toll, Ltd. to administer a program which utilizes license plate information to identify rental vehicles and electronically collect the toll.
American Traffic Solutions is currently offering its PlatePass cashless toll payment service to rental car customers using vehicles rented from Avis, Budget, and Hertz. Rent A Toll will soon offer its Pass24 service to Dollar and Thrifty rental customers.
Enterprise, Alamo, and National have yet to sign up for the new rental car program but Turnpike officials are hopeful that they too will soon be part of the program.
Under the terms of the agreement with American Traffic Solutions, customers who rent cars from Avis, Budget and Hertz will pay daily fees of $2.00 to $2.50 plus actual toll usage.
The daily fee for PlatePass will only apply for days when toll roads are actually used. Under the Rent A Toll Pass24 pre-paid toll service with Dollar and Thrifty, customers will have unlimited toll usage for a flat daily fee of $5.95 per rental day, or $27.95 weekly. All toll charges are included in the daily or weekly fee.
