TALLAHASSEE, Fla. ~ TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - In a recent announcement, Governor Ron DeSantis revealed that the Toll Relief Program in Florida has successfully distributed its first month of toll relief for commuters. This program, which was initially introduced in April for the second consecutive year, has already saved over $42 million for more than 1.2 million SunPass customers.

Under this year-long program, customers who have at least 35 monthly toll transactions will receive a 50 percent credit to their account automatically. This has resulted in significant savings for commuters, with an estimated average of $400 per individual. The program is set to continue until March 2025 and covers a wide range of toll facilities across the state.

Governor DeSantis expressed his satisfaction with the program's success so far, stating that it has saved Florida commuters nearly $42 million in just one month. He also emphasized the importance of providing financial relief to families during times of high inflation caused by external factors.

Lieutenant Governor Jeanette Nuñez also praised the Toll Relief Program and its impact on Florida's families. She highlighted how what started as a SunPass Savings Program has now evolved into a second year of providing direct and immediate relief to commuters.

The Florida Department of Transportation Secretary Jared W. Perdue, P.E., also shared his thoughts on the program's success. He stated that among the many benefits of choosing SunPass, offering tangible savings to commuters is something they are proud of and aligns with Governor DeSantis' vision.

One significant aspect of this program is that there is no need for drivers to apply for these savings actively. Those with a Florida-based transponder are automatically enrolled in the program. For those seeking more information about the Toll Relief Program, they can visit their website.
