Q: How are bridge tolls charged? How does the ConneXion program work?

When creating your ConneXion program account, you will be asked for credit card information and authorization to pre-pay $50 in tolls. By mail, you will be provided with a radio-frequency device that is to be mounted on your vehicle’s windshield.

Every time you cross through the automated lane in the toll plaza, antennas in the lane will discover your car’s device and a discounted toll fare will be debited from your account.

You can also configure your account to allow for automatic top-ups when it falls to a level that is insufficient to cover your next crossing’s toll. This will ensure hassle-free cashless crossings every time.
