TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Florida commuters who still use old battery-operated SunPass transponders in their cars need to hurry to get a free replacement.
Drivers can trade in old battery-operated transponders until Dec. 31, 2015 to get a new transponder — either a new device or a sticker — free of charge. The old version will no longer be accepted to pay for tolls beginning on Jan. 1, 2016.
SunPass says about 100,000 active customers are still using the old models, which could be swapped at no cost for a permanent sticker tag or a portable model that can be used in multiple vehicles.
SunPass says they’re sending out postcards or emails to remind drivers. In order to get a free replacement, call 1-855-TAG SWAP or visit www.sunpasstagswap.com
