Effective Wednesday, July 1, Osceola Parkway toll rates will increase by $1 for motorists who utilize toll-by-plate rather than transponders for toll collections at the Shingle Creek and Poinciana Boulevard toll plazas.

Current rates for motorists with either SunPass or E-Pass transponder issued by the Florida Turnpike Enterprise or the Central Florida Expressway Authority will remain the same: $2 at the main line toll for a 2-axle vehicle and $2 for each additional axle, and $1 for all vehicles at the Poinciana Boulevard exit.

The rate increase only applies to motorists who do NOT have transponders and are billed each time they pass through a toll plaza. These rate increases for pay-by-plate motorists are in keeping with previously policies authorized by the Central Florida Expressway Authority.

The solution: get an E-Pass or SunPass transponder.  They’re available online at GetEpass.com or SunPass.com, or by phone at 800-353-7277. Transponders are also available at one of more than 3,100 retail locations including Publix Super Markets, CVS Pharmacy, Walgreens, Amscot Financial and Sedano’s Supermarkets.
