NC shares electronic toll system with Fla.
Posted July 29, 2013
Raleigh, N.C. — NC Quick Pass, which allows drivers to prepay tolls electronically, is now interchangeable with the Florida SunPass.
The state Department of Transportation said Monday that transponders for either state will work as a form of payment on toll roads where either pass is accepted.
Transportation officials said they have tested the equipment to help prevent double-billing.
“This agreement will allow our customers to travel on Florida’s toll roads with the same ease that they enjoy here in North Carolina,” N.C. Turnpike Authority Operations Director John Breedlove said in a statement. “It comes at the perfect time – making summer vacation travel easier and more efficient for motorists in both states.”
In January, NC Quick Pass linked with the widely used E-ZPass system.
