On Wednesday, September 7, 2022, Governor Ron DeSantis announced his legislative proposal to provide discounts on tolls for frequent commuters using any toll roads across the state. 

  • Under this proposal, Floridians who use toll transponders like SunPass and E-PASS and have 40 or more transactions a month would receive a 50 percent credit on their monthly bill. 
  • This proposal would benefit approximately 750,000 Floridians who frequently commute and would save the average commuter around $550 a year. 

Unlike last month’s short-term SunPass Savings program, the Mid-Bay Bridge and Spence Parkway are included in this new proposal. 

“Last month I announced a short-term SunPass Savings program for Florida commuters, but I promised that we would continue to look for more ways to save Floridians money on their daily commute,” said Governor Ron DeSantis. “This proposal will require legislative approval and is more far-reaching – it provides a 50% discount on all tolls throughout the state of Florida, saving the average commuter $550 per year.”

If passed, this proposal would apply to all toll roads across the state and would begin on July 1, 2023, and run through June 30, 2024. This new program will give customers with at least 40 paid transactions a month a 50 percent credit on their tolls between July 1, 2023, and June 30, 2024.

  1. This 50% savings should be per household, not per transponder! Most households have 2 cars on the road!

    Also Sundays going to & from Church will need a discount!
