How Tolling Works

Account with a transponder

This is the most effective option. Your vehicle will be automatically recognised when it crosses the bridge. Toll and monthly administration fees are debited from the balance of your prepaid customer account.

Account without a transponder

You can also choose not to use a transponder. Your vehicle will be identified using video tolling technology (licence plate imagery). Toll cost and administration fees will be debited from the balance of your customer account for each crossing.
