SunPass offers new transponder that works in 12+ states
LEE COUNTY, Fla.– Since the COVID-19 pandemic, most tolling plazas have been shut down. Transponders are necessary unless you want to receive a bill in the mail. The good news is SunPass is now offering a new transponder that will work in more than a dozen states.
Jeff VanSickel lives in Wilmington Delaware and is visiting Fort Myers. He currently only uses EZ Pass in all of his vehicles but that was useless in Florida until just recently.
“The problem is, if we were to come down here, you guys have SunPass and probably stupidly go right through the toll and then get something in the mail because they caught our tag number,” VanSickel said.
That was the case until SunPass and EZ Pass became compatible which means anyone with an EZ pass can now use it on 900 miles of Florida toll roads.
Dave Wick lives part of the time in Fort Myers and the other half in the Chicago area. He was excited to hear that his EZ Pass will now work in Florida.
Those without EZ Pass can now purchase the new “SunPass Pro” which gives drivers access to toll roads in 15 additional states.
“You get a lot of midwest people, I’m sure, down in this area like us. So you’ll get folks who want to come in and use the same pass,” Wick said.
The new SunPass pro is $14.95. The old SunPass is only compatible in Georgia and North Carolina.
You can pick up the SunPass Pro at CVS, Walgreens, and Publix.
