April 17, 2009 -- The Mackinac Bridge Authority (MBA) today announced that it will implement a new electronic toll-payment option beginning Monday, April 20. The "Quick Card" will be available to motorists wishing to pre-pay the full fare in exchange for a quick transaction at any toll booth.
"These cards will be quick and convenient for our customers to use at any toll booth, staffed or unstaffed," said MBA Vice Chair Barbara Brown. "They also will alleviate congestion at the toll plaza during peak hours."
The MBA requires an initial deposit of $90 (and includes a fee of $10), in order to issue a new card. Additional deposits in the future must be a minimum of $80. No refunds will be available and the cards will expire five years from the date of purchase.
"The 'Quick Card' is intended for regular passenger vehicles that are not pulling a trailer," adds Brown.
Anyone interested in obtaining a "Quick Card" should stop in the MBA Administrative Office in St. Ignace.
