Change Is Coming
Big changes are coming to RiverLink in the coming months as we make significant investments in our technology and services. We have designed a new system for an improved customer experience.
RiverLink will transition to a new toll service provider this summer. As part of the transition, customers may notice some differences when using their accounts, receiving invoices and crossing the bridges.
Here are the top 10 things customers should know as RiverLink transitions toll service providers.
10 Things to Know During RiverLink’s Transition
1. Starting April 1, invoices for crossings billed using video capture will be held until the new toll service provider’s go-live date.
RiverLink is holding invoices for new video transactions beginning April 1 until the new toll system provider goes live. Video crossings (vehicles without a transponder or registered plate) during this time will be billed beginning in August. Registered pre-paid tag transactions will continue to post to registered customer accounts during this period.

2. Customers will receive one monthly invoice that includes all tolls owed.
Starting in September, you will receive one invoice each month that includes all recent crossings and any unpaid previous crossings and fees. This will ensure you are always aware of the most up-to-date amount you owe.
Additionally, RiverLink will no longer hold invoices less than $5. Under the new system, invoices less than $5 will be issued, ensuring you receive bills in a timely manner.
3. Current transponders will still work!
The updated technology will work with current transponders, meaning you won’t need to buy a new one.

You might notice some small differences when logging in to your RiverLink account after the transition. A valid email address and a new password will be needed to login.
Pay by Plate functionality will no longer be available online. If you want to use Pay by Plate to pay your tolls, you will need to call 855-RIV-LINK.
