   The new All-Electronic Tolling System is being installed on Card Sound Road and will be operational in June 2018. It replaces the cash-only tollbooth that was removed last year.

   With the new system, all tolls will be collected electronically. Motorists will use either SunPass®, an interoperable transponder or TOLL-BY-PLATE. Cash will not be accepted on the roadway. TOLL-BY-PLATE customers will be charged the toll plus a monthly $2.50 administrative fee and will be billed by mail.

The new Card Sound toll rates are: $1.50 for two axle vehicles (cars, pickup trucks and motorcycles) and $1 per axle for vehicles with 3 or more axles. Discount programs are available for two-axle vehicles only, but must use SunPass and have an account in good standing.

SUNPASS SPECIAL PROMOTION

Wednesday, May 9, from noon to 5 p.m.

Murray Nelson Government Center lobby, 102050 Overseas Highway in Key Largo.

Receive $4.99 in toll credits when you purchase and activate a SunPass Mini transponder with $10 in prepaid tolls.

MONTHLY REBATE PROGRAM

For frequent users who drive two-axle vehicles. Automatically receive a 40% rebate on SunPass® account after any calendar month you make at least 28 one-way trips through the toll.

Must make trips using a valid SunPass transponder. Transponder must be used on the vehicle to which it is registered.

You do not need to sign-up for this program. It’s automatic.

ANNUAL PASS PROGRAM

Begins Jan. 1, 2019, for frequent users who drive two-axle vehicles.

To be eligible to participate, you must first purchase a SunPass® transponder and open an account with a $10 initial prepaid balance.

You must sign up for the program with the Card Sound Toll Authority and pay an annual fee of $360.

Provides unlimited trips through the toll for a year (Jan. 1 through Dec. 31)

Annual Pass is only valid for the vehicle and license plate enrolled or with the SunPass® transponder listed on the application. Annual Pass is not transferrable to another vehicle.

NOTE: Discount programs do not apply to vehicles being towed. Your account will be charged $1 per axle for any vehicle going through the toll with three axles or more, even if you have an annual pass. And trips made through the toll with three axels or more will not count toward the rebate program.
