State’s tolling system will soon work on FL, NC roads



By Andria Simmons

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Georgia’s Peach Pass will soon work with Florida’s Sun Pass and North Carolina’s Quick Pass toll collection systems.

Chris Tomlinson, executive director of the State Road and Tollway Authority, announced Wednesday that the three systems would be working together by the end of this year.

That means whether Georgians are heading to Disney World or South Beach, to Key West or the Gulf Coast, windshield-mounted transponders that 270,000 drivers already possess will allow them to maneuver more quickly and easily along the 734 miles of toll roads, bridges and causeways in the Sunshine State. And, they’ll be able to do the same along several toll roads in North Carolina.

The converging of the three systems is Georgia’s first step toward compliance with a federal mandate that requires all states to have interoperable road tolling systems by October 1, 2016.
