Airport parking being SunPass-readied for easier payment

Passengers at Palm Beach International Airport won't have to dig through their luggage for cash or a credit card to get out of the parking garage anymore.
Palm Beach County commissioners this morning signed off on a five-year deal with the state that will allow passengers to us their SunPass transponders at the airport, allowing travelers to instantly pay their parking bill.

The system will be running early next year.

Under the agreement, the state will collect all of the parking fees paid for with SunPass and then turn the money over to the airport each week.

After two years, the state will begin charging 13 cents per transaction for the service. Airport managers estimate the transaction fee will cost PBIA $50,000 each year, assuming that 35 percent of parking lot customers opt to use the transponder system.

The SunPass system has already been installed at airports in Orlando and Tampa.
