Shepard Broad Causeway Pass Plan

What is the Pass Plan?

The Shepard Broad Causeway SunPass Toll Pass Plan (Pass Plan) is a flat-rate convenience toll-pass program for use with SunPass transponders, only. NON-SUNPASS TRANSPONDERS AND PLATES ARE INELIGIBLE FOR EXEMPTION.

Terms and Conditions

In order to avail oneself of the Pass Plan program and be exempted from tolls on the Shepard Broad Causeway, you must have an established, properly funded, active SunPass account in your name and a working SunPass transponder, associated with said account, properly mounted in/on your vehicle and meet all the requirements outlined herein.

Each Pass Plan covers one (1) SunPass transponder for use by the applicant, their spouse or minor child for one (1) vehicle for the consecutive number of days purchased. The Pass Plan is non-refundable* and non-transferable.

Your registered SunPass transponder must be properly mounted in/on your vehicle at all times so that it is read when using the Shepard Broad Causeway toll. Determining proper transponder placement for your vehicle is the responsibility of the Pass Plan holder.

The registered SunPass transponder is your sole means of access to zero-cost tolls. If the exempt transponder is not read by the receiver in the electronic toll collection lane for any reason you are 100% responsible for that toll charge and for determining the cause.

License plates are not associated with your Pass Plan and license plate charges are not covered by the Pass Plan. NO REFUNDS WILL BE CONSIDERED OR GIVEN should you be charged via your license plate. Any and all requests for plate charge refunds will be denied.

Your SunPass account must reflect a positive balance without interruption, for the length of your Pass Plan subscription. If you allow your SunPass account to fall below zero at any time, you must enroll in auto-replenishment with SunPass in order to continue your participation. Any tolls incurred during the period your SunPass account was negative are your responsibility to pay.

Your vehicle must have a Florida plate and a current, valid Florida vehicle registration in your name (or in the name of your spouse). That vehicle plate must be registered to the same SunPass account as your transponder.

You must have a current, valid Florida Driver License. (Out-of-state, seasonal residents wishing to purchase a 6-month pass must provide proof of residence for the state in which they reside full-time, prior to applying.)

You must attest to the fact that you owe no money to the Town of Bay Harbor Islands, SunPass, FDOT or any toll agency for tolls incurred by any means. If you are found to have defaulted on a toll bill in the past, you will be deemed eligible to participate in the Shepard Broad Causeway Toll Pass Plan Program.

If you change vehicles or transponders, you are required to complete and submit a change-form accessible at in order to continue participation.

You agree that the Town of Bay Harbor Islands has no obligation or liability to you with respect to your use or the performance of the SunPass transponder. You agree to indemnify and hold harmless from and against any and all damages, loss, cost, expense, or liability relating to, arising from, or as a result of, the use or performance of the SunPass device. No refunds for tolls may be expected or requested. 

Pass Plan holders are responsible for all aspects of their Pass Plans including renewals. We suggest you mark your calendar with a reminder to renew no less than 25-business days prior to expiration to avoid a lapse in coverage. No notification will be sent by the Town. 

Violation of Terms and Conditions 

Failure to abide by any of the terms and conditions stated in this agreement, may result in termination of your Pass Plan (immediately disqualify your device) and (any and all) toll trip transactions executed thereafter will be processed through the SunPass or Toll by Plate program as stated in the SunPass Business Rules. 

*If within 5-business days of payment for a Pass Plan you wish to request a refund for said purchase you may make the request by emailing If the amount paid for your Pass Plan exceeds the retail value of your trips to date, a refund will be issued for the amount paid for that plan, less the retail value of the trips exempted thus far.
