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 roads that will allow E-ZPass will include:

  • SR-408 (east of Colonial Drive only)
  • SR-417 (from the Orange-Seminole county line to International Dr / World Center Drive only)
  • SR-429 (from the Orange-Lake county line to Seidel Road only)
  • SR-528 (Beachline from McCoy Road to SR-520 only)
  • SR-414, SR-451 and SR-453 inside Orange County

The E-Z Pass transponders will not work on toll roads operated by FTE or FDOT, which include Florida’s Turnpike and parts of SR-528 (the Beachline), SR-429, and SR-417.

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.
