LeeWay offers different programs for the Cape Coral toll bridges so you can save money while traveling to and from Ft Myers.

It is particular to Lee County bridges and is a pass program for tolls that also can be used around the rest of the state.

Costs are $2 for cars, and more for larger vehicles, to travel over the Cape Coral Bridge and Midpoint Bridge from Ft Myers into the Cape.

Thankfully, there is no toll to travel back into Ft Myers.

To go over the Sanibel Causeway, you will pay $6!  It's worth it to get the toll pass because it can be a pain in the neck to make sure you always have toll money on hand.

Or, you may be in a rush, or just wanting to get to the beach, and then you get stuck behind a line at the toll booth, which happens a lot with all during rush hours, weekends, or late morning for Sanibel during season.

All you have to do to avoid these hassles is to buy one of 2 kinds of transponders for your car, and then pick one of 3 kinds of prepaid accounts to pay for tolls.

The first type of transponder is a $10 sticker that is permanently stuck onto your windshield behind the rear-view mirror, which you can see in the picture below.

The pro is a lower upfront cost and the con is you would need to get a new one once you get a new car.

The next option is to buy a $32 hard-case transponder that is designed to be affixed to your windshield, but doesn't have to be.

Even though you're supposed to have 1 transponder for 1 particular car, you may want to be able to keep the transponder off your windshield.

You may be getting a new car soon, or you're a snowbird and want to take it off when you're up north.

Besides the Cape Coral and Midpoint Bridges, and the Sanibel Causeway, you can also use your transponder in Florida for tolls that use Sunpass and Epass.

There's a 90-day warranty on your transponder if it fails, and you have not removed or abused it.

Either way, it's so nice to be able to zip through the Leeway lane of the toll booth without having to stop.

Okay, once you've bought your transponder ........ you'll need to know about the different accounts you can get, which is the way you'll pay for your tolls .......... and I hope I don't confuse you!

Variable Pricing - This is the account I have since I only go over the bridges once or twice a month. You get a 25% discount Monday- Friday during these off-peak hours:

  • 6:30 am - 7:00 am
  • 9:00 am - 11:00 am
  • 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
  • 6:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Unlimited Trips - If you go over the bridges once a day, 7 days a week or more, you may want to get this account. We had this account when we first moved here and my daughter was traveling once or twice a day over the bridges for school and work. You can pay annually from November 1 - October 31 or semi-annually November 1 - April 30 or May 1 - October 31. Prices are annual/semi-annual:

  • Midpoint/Cape Coral - $330/$200
  • Sanibel - $400/$300
  • All Bridges - $730/$500

Reduced Fare Trips - If you go over the bridges at least once a week on a regular basis, you may want to get this account. My older daughter has this program since she lives in Ft Myers and works in Cape Coral.   The toll is reduced to $1 for Midpoint and Cape Coral Bridges, and $2 for Sanibel.  The annual/semi-annual payments are:

  • Midpoint/Cape Coral - $40/$24
  • Sanibel - $67/$50
  • All Bridges - $107/$74

There are discounts for multiple vehicles. Once you've picked your account, you'll have your tolls deducted from debit or credit card accounts. You can also sign up for:

  • Auto Replenishment - For Variable Pricing Accounts - when your balance goes below $10, your debit or credit card will automatically be charged $30. If you go through the toll and notice a yellow traffic light more than 2 days, you may be having a problem with your account and must contact Leeway.
  • Continuous Renewal - For Unlimited Trips and Reduced Fare Trips - you can have your account automatically renewed each renewal period.

The toll for the Midpoint Bridge is on the Cape Coral side and the toll for the Cape Coral Bridge is on the Ft Myers side.

There are no tolls for the Edison and Hancock Bridges from downtown Ft Myers into North Ft Myers and northeast parts of the Cape.

Sometimes I get so annoyed that I have to pay these tolls, but then I remember that Cape Coral is the city with the second lowest crime rate in Florida and I think having to pay bridge tolls helps keep it that way.

I do love driving over the bridges though, I'm always reminded how lucky I am to live in such a beautiful area with all the water, boats in the river, and sunshiny big sky!

To get your transponder and choose an account, go to the Ft Myers side of the Midpoint Bridge on Colonial, right on Summerlin, right into Palm Square Blvd, right onto Via Royale and just before you get to the bridge, left into Leeway's parking lot.

Besides the 3 locations in SWFL, you can also use your LeeWay transponder in Florida and North Carolina at these locations:

  • FDOT Turnpike system roads (SunPass)
  • Orlando Orange County Expressway Authority (E-Pass)
  • Miami Dade Expressway Authority (SunPass)
  • Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority. (SunPass)
  • North Carolina's Triangle Expressway located in the Research Triangle Park Region of North Carolina.

1366 Colonial Blvd, Ft Myers
