    The transponder, which is separate from E-Pass and SunPass, is familiar to people who have lived or driven outside of Florida. E-ZPass is already in use on toll roads in 16 other states.

    The Central Florida Expressway Authority will start accepting E-ZPass on its roads starting Saturday, Sept. 1.

    The Central Florida Expressway Authority also said it’s working with E-ZPass to release a multistate transponder called E-Pass Xtra, that would allow drivers to use their E-Pass in E-ZPass territory, which includes 16 other states mainly on the east coast.
