Older LeeWay Transponders Scheduled to Be Turned Off Nov. 1
LeeWay customers who have older bumper mount or replaceable battery LeeWay transponders must visit the service center at 1366 Colonial Blvd., Fort Myers, to purchase a new transponder before Nov. 1 in conjunction with the annual renewal of accounts and any discount programs. Two new transponders are available: LeeWay Mini ($10) and LeeWay Hard Case ($22). The older transponders will no longer work as of Nov. 1 on the LeeWay system or within the state. The upgrade is necessary to maintain future compatibility with the statewide SunPass system and allow for possible expansion to other states. Read more.
