LeeWay Transponders now accepted on North Carolina Toll Roads

 

FORT MYERS, FL (August 2, 2013) – As part of Lee County’s interoperability with our Florida Toll Agency partners,  LeeWay transponders are now accepted on North Carolina Toll Roads.   Motorists from Florida and North Carolina are now able to travel toll roads in each state using their, LeeWay, E-PASS, Quick Pass or SunPass transponder to pay for tolls electronically.   

As of Tuesday, the electronic toll systems in Florida and North Carolina are functioning as one, providing seamless operations for motorists who pay their tolls electronically.

Any toll road in Florida that accepts, LeeWay, E-PASS or SunPass, will now accept all Quick Pass transponders. Quick Pass motorists traveling in Florida will need to utilize the clearly marked, dedicated LeeWay, E-PASS or SunPass lanes located throughout Florida’s toll road system. Conversely, all LeeWay, E-PASS or SunPass transponders will be accepted on North Carolina’s Triangle Expressway located in the Research Triangle Park Region of North Carolina. The Triangle Expressway is an all-electronic system.

This agreement marks the first of what promises to be many interoperable arrangements with other states in the region.
