Tolling Options and Rates

Save on Tolls by Knowing Your Options

The best way to make sure you pay the lowest toll rates is to set up a prepaid account and get a transponder, even if you don’t plan to cross the bridges often. You can also choose to have a prepaid account without a transponder, but this option costs more. For more details, view the toll rate chart.

Sensors read a transponder on the windshield and the toll is deducted from the customer’s prepaid account. 
The vehicle’s license plate is photographed and the toll is deducted from the customer’s prepaid account. 

The vehicle’s license plate is photographed. The toll can be paid over the phone or an invoice will be mailed to the registered owner of the vehicle. Customers will be able to pay-by-plate from riteOnline by entering in their license plate and license plate state (VIN is not required).

For customers who want to pay the transponder rate without opening a prepaid account, we also offer a RiverLink starter kit available at select retail locations.
Vehicle classification is determined by vehicle height and the number of axles. Added height to a vehicle (roof top luggage, accessories, and/or cargo exceeding 7 ½ feet) or added axles (pulling a trailer or boat) will result in higher toll rates. These crossings do not qualify for the frequentuser discount.

To keep traffic moving smoothly, RiverLink uses an all-electronic tolling system. Customers have several convenient options to pay tolls. Compare the options and decide what works best for you.
