Golden Ears tolls kick-in

SURREY, B.C. — The grace period for tolls on the Golden Ears Bridge in B.C.’s Fraser Valley ends tomorrow and crossing charges begin.

As of midnight tonight (12:01 am Thurs. July 16, 2009), vehicles crossing the bridge will be subject to a toll whether or not they are registered or have a Quickpass electronic transponder yet or not.

The system scans licence plates and sends toll invoices to vehicle owners.

Unregistered heavy trucks will pay $9.40 per crossing, compared to $8.90 for registered trucks or $8.30 for those with a transponder.

Light duty trucks will pay $6.65 per crossing, versus $6.10 and $5.55, if they’re registered and/or have transponders, respectively.
