Tolling Rates

Save on Tolls By Knowing Your Options

Compared to many bridge tolls around the country, RiverLink rates are a bargain. But, it pays to know how the rates are structured so you don’t pay any more than you should. The best way to make sure you pay the lowest rates is to get a transponder, even if you don’t plan to cross the bridges all that often. With a transponder, your toll is paid automatically every time you cross a toll bridge.


Your first RiverLink local transponder, per vehicle, is free. Or, you can choose a RiverLink E-ZPass transponder that works in 16 states. The cost of the RiverLink E-ZPass transponder is $15.

For passenger vehicles with roof top luggage, accessories and/or cargo, if the height exceeds 7 ½ feet, you will be charged as a medium vehicle, $5.00 if you have a transponder. Trips where vehicles that would normally be classified as passenger vehicles are re-classified to a higher rate due to the height of cargo or due to pulling a trailer and will not qualify for the Frequent User Discount.

Pre-Paid And Frequent Users

Pre-paid accounts can be started with a minimum balance of $20. There is no service charge for setting up or maintaining an active account. You can arrange for an automatic charge to a credit card, debit card, or checking account so that your account always remains in good standing. If you chose not to do this and your account balance falls below $10, RiverLink will attempt to send you a reminder to replenish your account. However, it is the customers responsibility to maintain proper funds in their account to avoid paying the higher toll rate that results if an account has insufficient funds to pay for a toll.


A frequent user discount is available to those with personal prepaid transponder accounts and is transponder specific. After 40 crossings using the same transponder in a calendar month (or 20 round trips), the system will automatically apply a 50% discount of $1 for your first 40 crossings plus any additional crossings within the same month using that transponder. For personal accounts having multiple transponders this discount is available for each transponder, but each must achieve the 40 crossing requirement independently. There is no need to register or to provide any tracking on your own.
