Ambassador Bridge to streamline tolling for CMVs

Bestpass and the Detroit International Bridge Company, owners of the Ambassador Bridge, announced a collaboration to streamline toll service for commercial vehicles using the bridge to travel between Detroit and Windsor, Ontario, in Canada.

“We are very excited to have Bestpass as a payment management option for our more than 7,400 commercial customers who use the Ambassador Bridge daily,” said Randy Spader, manager of operations for the Ambassador Bridge. “Our Electronic Tolling System (APASS) has allowed us to continue efficiency in minimizing border processing times when using the Ambassador Bridge to cross between U.S. and Canada. Being the busiest commercial border crossing in North America, it is essential that we continue facility and operational enhancements to go beyond our obligation in supporting the U.S. and Canadian economies.”

Bestpass customers using the Ambassador Bridge can pay tolls through their Bestpass account.

“We are aggressively expanding our tolling coverage for our clients. With our recent addition of Florida and Kansas, along with the addition of Oklahoma and Texas in early 2016, we expect to have 100 percent of the major toll facilities in the United States under our umbrella in short order,” said John Andrews, president and CEO of Bestpass. “We are also looking to work closely with toll facility operators like Ambassador Bridge to make sure that our service runs as smoothly as possible, no matter where our customers are driving.”
