If you ride through Lee County you have the option use the LeeWay Transponder instead of the SunPass to get through the tolls.
If you’re a newcomer to Southwest Florida, the first thing you probably learned is that you need a car to get around. And depending on your daily commute, you probably have to drive through tolls to get to your destination.
As a commuter, you can ease on through without having to stop to pay cash if you have a prepaid transponder, attached to the windshield of your car. Some commuters opt for the SunPass to get them through roads and bridges in the state of Florida, as well as North Carolina and Georgia.
If you ride through Lee County on a regular basis and have to cross over the Cape Coral Bridge, Midpoint Memorial Memorial Bridge, or the Sanibel Causeway, you have the option use the LeeWay Transponder instead of the SunPass to get through the tolls.
