B.C. government announces toll removals starting Sept. 1

Starting at midnight on September 1, 2017 drivers will not incur new toll charges on the Golden Ears Bridge

Today, the B.C. government announced tolls will be removed from the Port Mann Bridge and Golden Ears Bridge, starting on Friday, September 1, 2017.

What does this mean for drivers who use the Golden Ears Bridge? Starting at midnight on September 1 you will not incur new toll charges. However, tolls for trips taken prior to this date must still be paid to Quickpass or TReO, depending on which agency sends you a bill.

To find out more about how to settle your account and return your transponder, please call Quickpass at 604.460.5050, visit them in person (12167 Harris Road, Pitt Meadows), or visit translink.ca.

    Wow. Such a short sighted policy. High cost, low benefit. There are better things we should be spending our public dollars on than removing tolls.

    Has TransLink / the Mayors’ Council got any clarity from Victoria on whether this means that the “mobility pricing” factored into the Ten-Year Vision is dead?

    Hi war on car, last Friday’s announcement has no impact on the work the Mobility Pricing Independent Commission is doing. They will make their recommendations in spring 2018. TransLink, the Mayors’ Council on Regional Transportation, and the Province will consider the recommendations as key advice in deciding how to move forward with any changes to the way we price transportation in this region.

    I said it once before on an online news article: When it comes to revenue, focus on the parking spots instead.

    Translink should also shut down the bridge on Sept 1st too…and reopen it only when the revenue shortfall is addressed.
