Now in its tenth month, Florida’s Toll Relief Program continued its record of significant savings for Florida commuters. For the month of October, 1.2 million customers earned account credits totaling $42.2 million.
Since the program’s inception in January, more than $385 million in Toll Relief credits have been issued in total, benefitting 1.2 million Floridians every month.
The Toll Relief Program, which was introduced by Governor DeSantis and enacted by the Florida Legislature, launched on January 1, 2023.
The year-long program automatically gives frequent users with at least 35 monthly toll transactions a 50 percent toll credit to their account. The Toll Relief Program builds on the successful SunPass Savings Program that concluded in December 2022 and resulted in 384,000 Florida commuters saving over $18 million.

“The Toll Relief Program has made a positive financial impact in the daily lives of those drivers who commute on a regular basis,,” said Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise Executive Director and CEO, Nicola Liquori. “Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise is proud to have played a role in providing real relief to Florida drivers and their families.”
In addition to the 25% savings SunPass customers already receive, the Toll Relief Program provides drivers with another way to save. The program runs through December 31 and is expected to provide 1.2 million drivers with savings of nearly $480 over the course of the year.
The Toll Relief Program is administered by Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise and includes SunPass as well as other Florida-based tolling agency partners throughout the state.
