Blue Water Bridge encourages all Edge account holders to request RFID transponders by Dec. 31

  • The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) and Federal Bridge Corporation Limited (FBCL) recently upgraded tolling software for commuter account holders.
  • Edge Pass account holders will now use radio frequency identification (RFID) transponder tags when crossing the Blue Water Bridge eastbound into Canada.
  • Edge pass holders should log into their account at www.BlueWaterBridge.us and request an RFID tag before Dec. 31.
  • Current ConneXion account holders who already have an RFID tag should not request an additional tag; instead, they should log into their Edge Pass account online and link their ConneXion tag number to their Blue Water Bridge MDOT account.

PORT HURON, Mich. ­- Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) Blue Water Bridge (BWB) staff is encouraging all Edge Pass commuter account holders to request a 6C radio frequency identification (RFID) tag for each vehicle used via their account. MDOT plans to phase out the use of physical Edge Pass cards by the end of the calendar year.

Following toll software upgrades in August, Edge Pass now offers a discounted rate and ease of use for account holders. The program also allows account holders to request the RFID cards for their windshield, further enhancing the process for those vehicles when accessing the eastbound BWB into Canada.

As BWB staff continue to streamline the tolling process for commuters, the new RFID tags will replace any physical magnetic stripe or proximity cards by Dec. 31, 2022. Customers who create new Edge Pass accounts will automatically receive an RFID tag, but existing Edge Pass customers who have already been issued a physical card will need to visit their account online and request the new windshield tag before the end of the calendar year.

Customers who already have a ConneXion tag from the Federal Bridge Corporation Limited (FBCL) should not request an Edge Pass RFID transponder tag, but rather log onto their Edge Pass account and enter their ConneXion tag number to link the RFID transponder tag to their Edge Pass account. Questions regarding the Edge Pass can be sent to MDOT-BWB-CustomerCare@Michigan.gov. Customers can apply by visiting www.BlueWaterBridge.us.

As a reminder, any BWB commuters still possessing tokens issued by FBCL must turn those tokens in by the end of the calendar year to be reimbursed. Tokens are no longer accepted as a form of payment; however, the FBCL will allow anyone still in possession of tokens to exchange them for payment. Token holders may redeem their tokens at:
