I-4 Express is a limited access toll road within the interstate. It offers drivers another choice to avoid congestion and reduce stress. I-4 Express will open with an introductory rate, which could be as low as 50 cents per trip, depending on your destination. During the introductory period, to travel the entire length of I-4 Express it will cost $3.50 eastbound and $3.00 westbound. This testing phase provides FDOT with data to enable the transition to a fully dynamic toll. The dynamic pricing for tolls in the future will not be a fixed rate and will vary based on demand for access to I-4 Express. Pricing will be adjusted based on traffic volumes in I-4 Express to manage the congestion. Since tolls are collected electronically, drivers must have a SunPass or other Florida-accepted transponder.
Reading the Signs
Recognizing and understanding I-4 Express signage is important. Watch our video to get familiar with the signs of I-4 Express.
When multiple destinations with prices are shown on signs, don’t add the amounts together. The toll amounts shown indicate the total cost to travel from your current location to the listed destination(s). Additional electronic signs will display toll rates well in advance of I-4 Express exits so you can choose to pay additional tolls to continue your drive or exit to the non-tolled general use lanes.
Only Pay for the Distance You Drive
Toll rates for I-4 Express are displayed on overhead signs located regularly along the length of the managed lanes. You’ll see pricing signs well in advance of exits to the general use lanes to help you decide whether to exit I-4 Express or continue your trip.
As demand for access to I-4 Express increases, the toll will also increase. This discourages additional motorists from entering the lanes, keeping them flowing. When fewer vehicles are using the lanes, the toll will decrease, encouraging more drivers to use I-4 Express. While the toll will change, drivers will never pay more than the amount shown on the electronic signs.
All Electronic Toll Collection
All tolls on I-4 Express are collected electronically so motorists must have a transponder to use I-4 Express. There is no cash or TOLL-BY-PLATE option. A $25 toll violation plus the cost of tolls will be imposed on drivers who don’t have an interoperable transponder.
Since electronic tolls are collected at highway speed, there is no need to slow down when driving under an overhead gantry.
Any two-axle vehicle equipped with an active, properly mounted SunPass or other Florida-accepted transponder can use I-4 Express. Trucks with three or more axles, and passenger vehicles pulling trailers or boats are not allowed.
Pre-registered vanpools and buses are allowed to use I-4 Express for free. For more information on registering vanpools and buses, visit reThink Your Commute.
