Bring back frequent traveler toll program at Blue Water Bridge Sarnia/Port Huron
This petition had 561 supporters
Most if not all toll bridges, routes or turnpikes in North America offer a discount to frequent travelers. In April of 2017, The Blue Water Bridge Canada (BWBC) took it upon themselves to end the token program that was offered, citing it was too costly to manage. However, failed promise after promise from The BWBC that a new program would start soon after. They have echoed their commitment to starting a new discount program similar to the Prox Card program offered at the Sault Ste. Marie crossing.
This should be viewed as an added tax and detriment to local economy on both sides of the border. Many businesses rely on cross border traffic and many heath care workers and other areas of business, cross daily. This may seem like minor issue to many, however it adds close to $1000 per year to a daily traveler’s budget.
The BWBC is not struggling financially and provides many good jobs to the area. The BWBC should care more about the people of the area and the impact it is having on local families and businesses.
The BWBC is most certainly dragging their feet on this issue to increase revenue. Attempts to have an explanation for the delays are met with ambiguous answers such as “software issues”. These types of responses are unacceptable from Crown corporation with much financial resource. Let’s let the BWBA know we are not happy about this and let’s make them address this issue!
