What are Thru Lanes?

Thru lanes are additional travel lanes located on a toll road that help provide congestion relief in high traffic areas. These lanes offer customers making longer, more regional trips, the ability to bypass the local traffic entering and exiting the road. Customers pay the same amount to use the thru lanes as they do in any other lane on the toll road. A SunPass or another interoperable transponder is required.

Vehicle Eligibility Vehicle Eligibility Who can use thru lanes?

Only two-axle vehicles equipped with an active and properly installed SunPass or another interoperable transponder can use the thru lanes.

The exemption does not apply since customers pay the same toll in the thru lanes as they would in any other lane on the toll road.
