Miami Sunpass System for Tolls
Miami SunPass System for Miami Beach Lodging Guests
What is the Miami SunPass System?
The Miami SunPass system is available to residents as well as Miami Beach lodging guests. It is an all-electronic open road tolling system which is used on the Florida Turnpike. Most tolls along the turnpike have special lanes marked SunPass-Only. These lanes are reserved for vehicles equipped with the Miami SunPass System, a method of electronic toll collection. If you are staying in Miami Beach lodging, you can purchase a Miami SunPass system and open an account by visiting, www.SunPass.com. Miami SunPass-Only lanes are recognized by white and yellow signs which are visible before you reach the toll plaza and they are placed over the SunPass-Only lanes. A motorist who enters a SunPass Only lane, without a SunPass, may be subject to a toll violation warning or a uniform traffic citation.
Miami SunPass System consists of a small, pocket sized portable device called a transponder which is attached to the inside of your car’s windshield below the rearview mirror. This transponder communicates by radio frequency with the toll plaza and as your car passes through a SunPass lane, the toll charges are electronically deducted from your Miami SunPass system prepaid account.
How to use Miami SunPass System with Rental Cars
