Will it be the same toll all the time?

No. 95 Express tolls vary based on the level of congestion as you enter the express lanes. Toll rates on the 95 Express are based on the traffic conditions of the express lanes only and not on the conditions of the local lanes. Roadway monitors placed on the project limits of the highway provide continuous information about how many vehicles are in the express lanes, how fast they are going, and how close together they are. This information is used to determine whether tolls go up or down to provide the best conditions possible. As the express lanes become more congested, toll rates increase. As the congestion goes down, toll rates decrease. This is called “Dynamic Tolling.”

How will I know the toll amount?

The toll amount is displayed on the overhead electronic signs before each of the 95 Express entrances so drivers have time to decide to use the express lanes or stay in the local lanes.

How does a toll-exempt user travel on 95 Express?

When traveling in a registered carpool or in a registered hybrid vehicle, drivers must shield their transponder. Otherwise the toll amount will be deducted from the prepaid SunPass account.

Portable transponders should be placed in a shield bag.  These are available at no additional cost from South Florida Commuter Services at 1-800-234-RIDE. Drivers who own a SunPass Mini should call 1-800-234-RIDE for instructions on how to travel toll-free.

Be aware that registered carpoolers must have their SunPass properly mounted when they are traveling alone or with non-registered passengers so the toll may be deducted from their prepaid SunPass account. The SunPass User Manual may be viewed at

What happens if I am not a registered 95 Express toll- free user or a valid SunPass customer?

If you unintentionally enter the 95 Express lanes and are not a registered 95 Express toll-free user or a SunPass customer, you are still obligated to pay the toll. In addition to the toll, you will be billed a $25.00 daily violation charge. The daily violation charge is applied every day you use the 95 Express Lanes without an active SunPass account. Please mail toll payment (check or money orders only, indicating vehicle plate information, date, time and 95 Express) to FDOT Turnpike Enterprise, P.O. Box 310, Ocoee, FL 34761-0310. DO NOT SEND CASH. Please be sure to retain a copy of your cancelled check/money order in the event a FDOT toll violation is generated. This may assist in closing the document once the document is received.

If you do not recall the toll rate in effect at the time you drove through the 95 Express lanes, please call the SunPass Customer Service Center at 1-888-865-5352 for assistance.

In the event that you receive an Unpaid Toll Violation, Violation Warning Letter or a Uniform Traffic Citation, be sure to respond by the due date and follow the instructions on the toll violation document.

Where can I purchase a SunPass?

The SunPass Portable and new SunPass Mini are available at Publix, CVS/pharmacy, Sedano’s and Navarro. They can also be purchased at Turnpike service plazas and Turnpike gas stations.  For more information please visit or call SunPass Customer Service at 1-888-TOLL-FLA (1-888-865-5352).

How do I travel toll-free on a motorcycle if I am a SunPass customer?

Shield your transponder on 95 Express. If you travel through adjacent toll plazas, place the transponder in the shield bag prior to beginning your trip. When you are traveling on the toll roads not including 95 Express, please remember to use your transponder as you normally do.

Is FDOT authorized to collect tolls on an interstate facility?

Tolling of interstate facilities is specifically authorized under a program administered by the U.S. Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration. This legislation permits the construction of high occupancy toll (HOT) lanes in specific cases. I-95 in Miami-Dade County was included under the Urban Partnership Agreement (UPA) program and is an authorized toll facility.

Why is the Department charging a toll on a road already paid with taxes?

While I-95 was constructed with Federal and State tax funds, the cost of the highway does not end there.  Maintenance and repair of the State’s highways are major continuous costs. Plus operations, including the Transportation Management Center, Road Ranger Service, and Florida Highway Patrol, are recurring costs. Federal and State funds have been unable to keep up with the ongoing costs of operating the State’s highways.

The tolls also offer a means of relieving traffic congestion without building new roads or widening existing roads.  The tolls are the cost of increased mobility in the I-95 corridor without the adverse construction impacts.

More importantly, 95 Express represents a totally different approach to reducing traffic congestion in south Florida. Congestion pricing encourages ride-sharing, use of fuel-efficient vehicles and transit services, and off-peak travel. These are all things that more traditional facilities do not provide.

With the opening of Phase 2, there will be more entrances to the 95 Express Lanes. How will I be tolled?

Drivers will be tolled per segment traveled.  A segment is defined as the  driver’s point of entry into the express lane  to the first opportunity to exit the express lane. There will be one gantry within the segment. Tolls will be posted to the customer account by gantry location for ease of understanding the tolls charged.
