Ambassador Bridge lowers toll fees

To ease the burden on commuters dealing with increased traffic, tolls on the Ambassador Bridge have been reduced.

Officials announced Monday that commuter tolls will be slashed from $4.60 and $4.00 down to $2.60 -- every day and all day, in either direction.

Current commuter card holders will be automatically enrolled in a new Ambassador Bridge Premier Commuter Card Program. Travelers prepay their toll fees online.

The decrease follows the closing of the Detroit Windsor Tunnel, the closing of I-75 and a shortage of staff and available lanes along the bridge itself.

Additionally, a third lane will be open for commuters Canada to the U.S. weekday mornings from 6:30-8:30 a.m., and a third lane for commuters from the U.S. to the Canada will be open weekday afternoons from 4-6 p.m.

New commuters can stop at the Ammex Duty Free Store on the U.S. side of the bridge to register for the Ambassador Bridge Premier Commuter Program.
