no cost to replace an old transponder
Don’t forget the deadline to replace your battery-operated SunPass transponders is December 31.
According to SunPass, battery-operated transponders will no longer work as of Jan. 1. and about 100,000 SunPass users are still using the older-model transponders.
There is no cost to replace an old transponder and service will not be interrupted.
Transponders, which attach to the inside of a car’s windshield, sends a signal to deducted the toll from the customer’s account. The newer portable models are slimmer and don’t beep when a toll is paid.
Congress required all toll roads to accept transponders from any state beginning last October.
This transponder replacement is necessary for SunPass to provide the highest customer service possible and is essential to its growth, according to SunPass.
There are two types to choose from:
Slim Transponder, $19.99: Attaches to the windshield with suction cups; can be moved from vehicle to vehicle; has 2-year warranty; no batteries are required; and does not light or beep when toll is paid.
SunPass Mini Sticker, $4.99: Placed just under the rear view mirror and is permanently fixed to the vehicle and not designed for use on motorcycles.
