Three bridges link Cape Coral with rapid connectors to other parts of the region. SW Florida International Airport (RSW), just minutes away, connects the Cape to everywhere and boasts Foreign Trade Zone status. The Cape Coral/College Parkway Bridge is the original bridge linking Cape Coral to the mainland. This is a toll bridge. The new Midpoint/Veteran's Parkway/Colonial Bridge is also a toll bridge.

Lee County offers a transponder, for a small fee, which attaches to your vehicle's windshield. This enables you to proceed through special lanes at the toll plaza. The transponder is linked to an account set up in your name, so each time you past through the toll plaza it is automatically deducted from your account. It also entitles you to special discounts at various times of the day. For information on the toll bridge transponders and/or discount plans available, contact the LeeWay Service Center located at 1366 Colonial Boulevard, Ft. Myers, Florida, 33907, or call (239) 931-0100.
