Payment Methods 

1. Single-use Toll Permits  
Single-use toll permits must be purchased prior to crossing the bridge.

Permits can be purchased online at or by contacting the scale for permit inquiries at 1-866-225-3505. Commercial carriers may also establish a business relationship with a third party permit issuer

2. Monthly Payment Remittance 
Carriers have the option of applying to use the monthly remittance method instead of purchasing single-use toll permits in advance.

By remitting a single payment for all crossings in a given month, accounting and payment procedures will be simplified. Remittance users will also enjoy considerable savings compared to purchasers of single-use toll permits.

To apply for the Remittance Program, complete the Remittance Application in full and return to the Department of Infrastructure. Once an application is approved, carriers using the monthly remittance method must report all northbound trips. Approved carriers must also register and install an approved transponder in every vehicle crossing the bridge. Transponders must be obtained from International Road Dynamics (IRD) by calling toll-free at 1 (866) 903-0333 or by email to Transponder.
