Monday marks one month since the new Miami-Dade Expressway tolls were put into place, a day which a group of protesters mark as, “Tollmageddon.”
Customers of Georgia’s Peach Pass system traveling Florida’s Turnpike during the Thanksgiving holiday were advised, via electronic message boards, to take the “SunPass-only” lane.
The free ride is about to end on the 836. More than a dozen Sunpass toll points have been installed up and down the expressway. It means anyone driving on the 836 is going to pay, and for some they’ll be paying double. This CBS4 investigation looks into the tolls, who will be impacted and where all that money, nearly a billion dollars is going.
There’s a big change coming to the Rickenbacker and Venetian Causeways. Beginning Tuesday, Sept. 23rd, tolls will be collected electronically via SunPass.
The Rickenbacker and Venetian Causeways are going electronic. Starting Tuesday, September 23, both causeways will convert to SunPass for toll collection.

Live on Key Biscayne or plan on visiting the beach or perhaps the Seaquarium? Starting this summer, the toll will be cashless as SunPass is coming to the Rickenbacker Causeway.
Drivers on the Sawgrass Expressway will have to use their change elsewhere. Starting Saturday night the expressway will not be accepting cash.
The free ride is over on the I-595 Express Lanes. Beginning Wednesday morning, a toll of 50-cents went into effect. Anyone wanting to use the lanes must have a SunPass transponder and an associated pre-paid account.
Make sure you have a SunPass! The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will start collecting tolls on the I-595 express lanes starting next week.
