TOLL RATE CHANGE EFFECTIVE NOVEMBER 1, 2013


LEWISTON, NY/QUEENSTON, ON – The Niagara Falls Bridge Commission (NFBC) today announced a series of toll rate changes for passenger and commercial vehicles at the Rainbow, Whirlpool-Rapids, and Lewiston-Queenston Bridge spans, effective November 1,
2013.  This change represents a $.25 toll increase for cars and toll increases for trucks ranging from $.25 to $3.50. It is the first rate update implemented at the NFBC crossings since 2007.


A listing of the adjusted toll rate schedule is available at  www.niagarafallsbridges.com.

 

The toll increase is a result of several factors, including: impending port improvements at the Lewiston Plaza due to begin spring 2014, increased operating costs resulting from the expansion of the Queenston Plaza, other upgrades to NFBC facilities in Canada and the United States, and future enhancements to the Whirlpool-Rapids Bridge.   The rate continues to be competitive in comparison to other major Can-Am border crossings. Motorists will be advised of the change through updated plaza and toll booth signage, informational flyer distribution, direct mailings, and online communications.


NEXUS members and ExpressPass holders will continue to receive a toll discount of $.25 at all NFBC crossings.  To learn more about enrolling in the NEXUS program or to obtain an ExpressPass tag, please visit the “Crossing Info” tab at www.niagarafallsbridges.com.

 

Motorists are thanked in advance for their understanding regarding this rate adjustment.
 
About the Niagara Falls Bridge Commission:

A Joint Resolution of the 1938 U.S. Congressional Third Session created the Niagara Falls Bridge Commission. The Extra Provincial Corporations Act of the Province of Ontario, Canada licenses the NFBC. Canada and the U.S. are equally represented on the NFBC by an eight-member Board of Commissioners.  Initially established to finance, construct and operate the Rainbow Bridge, the Commission proved sufficiently efficient and effective to assume responsibilities for the Whirlpool Rapids (Lower) and Lewiston-Queenston Bridges. The NFBC builds and maintains all facilities for Customs and Immigration functions on both sides of the international border. The NFBC is self-supportive, largely through user fees (tolls) and private-sector tenant leases. NFBC is federally chartered to conduct international commercial financial transactions and issue federal (U.S.) tax-exempt bonds.

Niagara Falls' reputation as a natural world wonder and honeymoon capital of the planet beckons visitors from around the globe. 

But it is the bridges that actually bring most of them here. 

No other single factor contributes more to tourism growth - indeed the export trade economy overall - than the NFBC's three monumental linkages of concrete and steel. Niagara Falls crossings rank second only to Kennedy International as the busiest port of entry between the U.S. and Canada. If you are about to travel over Niagara's gorge, your vehicle will take one of about 7.2 million passages expected this year on NFBC bridges.
