As of Sept. 1, it is free to cross the Port Mann and Golden Ears bridges.
“We’re making life more affordable for people who cross the Fraser every day,” said Premier John Horgan. “We’re putting money back into the pockets of commuters and families. It’s about fairness and keeping our commitments.”
The tolling for both bridges ended at midnight on Aug. 31, 2017. Starting Sept. 1, all vehicles can cross either the Port Mann or the Golden Ears Bridge for free.
“This is fantastic news for commuters and for commercial drivers, who will benefit from this change,” said Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Claire Trevena. “Getting rid of tolls will clear congestion on other routes, so people can spend less time stuck in traffic and more time with their families.”
The tolling system and cameras are turned off, meaning that starting Sept. 1, drivers who cross over either bridge will not be tolled. Bills for tolls up to and including Aug. 31, 2017 will still need to be paid and the process for bill payment will remain in place.
