Toll Reference

TOLL CLASSES IN GENERAL

The most important thing to remember when counting axles is that you count ALL axles with wheels touching the ground. If the wheel is on the ground, the axle to which it is connected is counted by the toll agency levying the charges.

The following vehicle types or classes apply for your travel on the Sunshine Skyway. In many cases, the only defining factor for your vehicle class is the number of axles. A guide for all classes and payments for Florida may be found on the toll payments page.

Remember, when counting axles, make certain to count all axles with wheels touching the ground. Be sure to include axles on any trailers your vehicle may be towing. That is the criteria for determining the total axles on your vehicle.
