The CFX Governing board unanimously approved an interlocal agreement with the Canaveral Port Authority that will enable E-PASS customers to pay for parking at Port Canaveral facilities using their E-PASS prepaid toll account beginning in 2021.

E-PASS customers who pay for parking electronically at OIA experience significantly reduced wait times, especially at peak times.
