LeeWay logoLEEWAY® — Transponders

A transponder is a small device that is programmed with specific customer account information. As you pass through the toll plaza, an overhead antenna reads the transponder and automatically deducts the correct toll amount from your prepaid toll account.

How to get a transponder

You can get a transponder shipped to your house by creating an account with LeeWay and loading their prepaid account.

Customers should also pay any outstanding pay-by-plate tolls.

Transponder Installation

Storage of Hard Case and Bumper Mounts — It is important that you store the transponder in the Mylar bag you received it in until you are ready to install.

Installation — The transponder should be installed inside your car, on the center of your windshield, behind the rear view mirror. Be sure to mount the transponder below your window tinting. Attaching the transponder in any other location may result in incorrect readings, and may lead to traffic citations. Instructions are included with the transponder when you receive it. 

LeeWay Customer Service Representatives will be happy to help you either install or remove a transponder. They also can test the transponder in the LeeWay Service Center’s test lane at the LeeWay Service Center.


Use a damp cloth to wipe the surface of the transponder. Do not submerge the transponder in water, and do not use any cleaning agents. Please do not paint or attach anything to your transponder, as it will prevent it from working properly.


Hard Case Transponder—Your transponder carries a 90 day warranty from the date of purchase. If your transponder fails to operate for reasons other than abuse or improper use and is returned to the LeeWay Service Center within 90 days of purchase date, we will replace the transponder at no extra charge.

Transponder Problems

Contact the LeeWay Service Center. The LeeWay Service Center is equipped with a test lane to test your transponder. 

Multiple Vehicles & Transponders

According to Lee County Ordinances the transponder must be registered and permanently affixed to one vehicle. If a transponder is transferred, a citation may be issued. You can have as many transponders on one account as you would like and may be eligible for multiple vehicle discounts.

Lost or Stolen Transponders

Report lost or stolen transponders immediately so they can be deactivated from your account.
