Terms and Conditions

These terms and conditions, together with your online ConneXion application (“Application”), constitute your ConneXion Agreement (“Agreement”) between you and The Federal Bridge Corporation Limited (“FBCL”).

ConneXion is an electronic toll collection system that is operated by FBCL and that allows you to pay for tolls to be incurred in respect of future crossings at FBCL ConneXion facilities.

Please read these terms and conditions and keep them for your records. When you submit your Application or use the ConneXion Toll Tag(s) associated with your Account (“Tag(s)”), you consent to the following terms and conditions:

1. Opening of Account

You authorize FBCL to open in your name an account (“Account”) to hold prepayments made by you for tolls to be incurred in respect of future crossings at FBCL ConneXion facilities and fees that may be charged to you by FBCL in accordance with this Agreement.

2. Tags

Upon opening the Account, FBCL will assign and provide to you the number of Tag(s) you specified in your Application, up to a maximum of four (4) Tag(s), which, for all intents and purposes, will be considered the Tag(s) associated with your Account and for which you will be responsible. You agree to pay to FBCL a fee in the amount of ten dollars ($10.00) for the assignment and provision of each Tag.

You must properly install the Tag(s) in or on your vehicle in accordance with the mounting instructions provided with the Tag(s). Failure to do so may result in the Tag(s) not being read in the lane and/ or the gate not being raised.

You acknowledge that, throughout the term of the Agreement, FBCL remains the sole owner of the Tag(s) and that you are fully responsible for the use made of the Tag(s) associated with your Account.

3. Licence

FBCL agrees that you may use or permit use of Tag(s) associated with your Account for the purposes of paying for tolls to be incurred in respect of future crossings at FBCL ConneXion facilities subject to the terms and conditions while this Agreement remains in effect.

4. General

Failure by you to comply with these terms and conditions may, at the sole discretion of FBCL, result in the closing of your Account and termination this Agreement.

You may not assign the obligations or benefits of this Agreement.

5. Tag Use

You agree not to use or permit use of Tag(s) for the purpose of paying for tolls at FBCL ConneXion facilities unless there is a credit balance in the Account at the relevant time of at least five dollars ($5.00).

You understand that the automated ConneXion system will not process any transaction where the credit balance in the Account, after the transaction being processed, would be less than five dollars ($5.00).

6. Operation of Account

At the time of the opening of the Account, using a valid credit card, you must prepay into the Account an amount of fifty dollars ($50.00) for tolls to be incurred in respect of future crossings at FBCL ConneXion facilities, plus a sum that is sufficient to cover the fees for the assignment and provision of the Tag(s).

You must maintain at all times a balance in the Account of at least five dollars ($5.00). No interest is paid or payable on the balance in the Account.

The threshold for automated replenishment is set at ten dollars ($10.00). When the replenishment threshold is reached, the Account must be replenished.

You are responsible to replenish the Account yourself by making a further prepayment into the Account as and when required, unless you have authorized FBCL in the Application to do so automatically for you by charging to your credit card the amount of the further prepayment.

The amount of any further prepayment that will be charged to your credit card shall be fifty dollars ($50.00), unless you have specified in the Application a different amount.

Every time the Tag(s) is/are used to pay for tolls in respect of a crossing at the FBCL ConneXion facilities, the credit balance in the Account will be debited by an amount equal to the applicable tolls less the ConneXion rebate that applies as published on the FBCL website. The FBCL ConneXion facilities are equipped to detect the class of vehicle going through in order to determine the applicable tolls.

FBCL, in its discretion, may request and receive updated information about your credit card, including new account numbers and expiration dates, from the financial institution issuing the card.

  • Mailing address,
  • Credit card account information (i.e., number, expiration date),
  • Payment method,
