TAMPA, Fla. - On April 17, the 5 millionth SunPass transponder was packaged for the State of Florida. The transponder was packaged at the MacDonald training center in Tampa.
That training center employs people with developmental disabilities and gets them ready for community employment. Macdonald training center CEO Jim Freyvogel says his crew of workers make less than one percent in errors.
The Macdonald training center won the contract to package the SunPass in 2007. Before then, SunPass transponders were packaged in Virginia.
The SunPass is the Florida Department of Transportation's innovative Prepaid Toll Program. You can purchase a SunPass online at sunpass.com .
