The Central Florida Expressway Authority (CFX) and the E-ZPass Group, a network of toll road agencies operating from Maine to North Carolina and west through Illinois, announced that E-ZPass will be accepted on CFX’s Metro Orlando toll roads starting Saturday, September 1, 2018. In a move to further their commitment to toll interoperability, CFX is the first and only Florida toll agency to join the E-ZPass network bringing the total number of states served by E-ZPass to 17.
With the addition of CFX to the E-ZPass Group, E-ZPass customers can use the transponder they already own on CFX’s 118-mile toll system. Toll roads in Central Florida where E-ZPass is accepted are outlined on the attached map.
The more than 35 million E-ZPass users can now drive in Metro Orlando and avoid having to fumble for change at CFX toll gantries. E-ZPass account holders will be billed for CFX tolls through their E-ZPass account with no extra fees or charges.
“Our customers wanted portability to the Sunshine State, and now they have it in Metro Orlando, the number one tourist destination in the U.S.,” said E-ZPass Group Executive Director PJ Wilkins. “There is no pre-registration required since customers are already enrolled. Just don’t forget to take your E-ZPass transponder when planning to travel CFX roads!”
Almost half of Florida’s domestic visitors come from E-ZPass states, with about 50% traveling by car. The partnership between CFX and E-ZPass simplifies the travel experience for visitors equipped with an E-ZPass transponder in their vehicle. The launch of the partnership between E-PASS and E-ZPASS comes ahead of the peak travel season when millions of visitors head to Orlando in search of warmth during the cold winter months.
E-ZPass does not capture tolls on roads outside of its network. E-ZPass customers traveling out of network on roads operated by Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise under the SunPass brand will be invoiced for tolls via Florida’s Toll-By-Plate program.
