The Canaveral Port Authority (CPA) and the Central Florida Expressway Authority (CFX) have executed an “Interlocal Agreement for Electronic Parking Fee Collection” to implement the E-PASS automated system at Port Canaveral that will enable customers to use contactless payment for parking at Port Canaveral-owned parking facilities with an E-PASS prepaid account, according to a press release.
“The convenience of the E-PASS system aligns with our goal of moving to contactless payment transactions throughout the Port,” said Port CEO Capt. John Murray. “This program takes us one step closer by offering our guests another option while advancing our efforts to improve the Port’s operations with proven technologies that provide greater efficiencies and cost savings.”
CFX has offered a similar automated payment program for E-PASS customers at Orlando International Airport (OIA) parking facilities since November 2003. E-PASS customers paying for parking at OIA experience significantly reduced wait times when exiting the parking garages, especially during peak hours.
“We are excited to expand the convenience of automated payment to the thousands of E-PASS customers who also use Port Canaveral facilities for cruise parking,” said CFX Executive Director Laura Kelley. “The partnership agreement with the Port, located in Brevard County, is the newest example of CFX’s commitment to delivering mobility solutions to our five county-region, while simultaneously expanding the benefits of E-PASS.”
