Florida Extends $450 Million Toll Relief For Second Year

April 2, 2024

Monday, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced a second consecutive year of the state’s Toll Relief Program, which will cut the toll rates of frequent commuters in half by applying a toll credit from April 2024 to March 2025.

Launched last year, drivers utilizing Florida-based toll transponders (including SunPass and other Florida-based transponders) and having 35 or more qualifying toll transactions monthly will receive a 50 percent credit to their account.

In the Northwest FLorida, the program applies to the Garcon Point Bridge, Bob Sikes Bridge, Spence Parkway, and Mid-Bay Bridge. For a map of toll roads and bridges included statewide, click here.

“I am pleased to have secured an additional $450 million for toll relief in Florida that will alleviate costs on our commuting families,” said Governor Ron DeSantis. “Florida is committed to good fiscal governance, and I am committed to returning our surpluses back to the taxpayers in the form of tax breaks and toll savings.”

In 2023, the Toll Relief Program delivered $500 million in substantial savings to over 1.2 million commuters, equating to an approximate savings of $400 per individual. Florida drivers can expect another year of toll savings from April 2024 to March 2025.

    Only local government get FREE bridge passes. The half price is if you make 35 trips a month on the SAME bridge.

    We already pay enough fuel taxes in Florida. There should be no charge to drive on OUR roads or bridges.

    I see the article says it applies to the Bob Sikes Bridge but what about for folks who buy an annual pass for the Bob Sikes Bridge?
