FOR ESCORTS

The Blue Water Bridge toll rates undergo semi-annual assessments, with the next review of toll rates and their U.S. currency equivalents set for October 1, 2024. This approach to toll rate adjustments is consistent with other international bridges, where tolls are regularly evaluated and modified based on economic conditions and currency exchange rate fluctuations.

The FBCL last adjusted Canadian toll rates in April 2023.

The FBCL encourages travelers to opt for the ConneXion pre-paid toll program, which offers a swift, easy, and cost-effective solution. Beyond reduced tolls, ConneXion offers users the benefit of fast, automated toll payments across all lanes. To sign up for ConneXion, one can go to federalbridge.ca/conneXion/. Those using ConneXion have the option to link their tags to the Edge Pass account system, which is managed by the Michigan Department of Transportation.
