ST. PETERSBURG — The Pinellas Bayway toll roads that allow drivers to travel between the city and St. Pete Beach will start taking cash payments again on Saturday morning, according to the Florida Department of Transportation.
FDOT started using its Toll-By-Plate system on Thursday in lieu of in-person payments while workers performed maintenance to the Pinellas Bayway Service Walk-Up Center. While the center was expected to allow cash payments again by Friday morning, FDOT said the cash option will now return Saturday at 6 a.m.
Customers who use a SunPass, Bayway commuter pass or resident pass are not affected. Cash-paying customers will be invoiced, but will not be charged an administrative fee while the Toll-By-Plate system is being used.
