The Federal Bridge Corporation Limited (FBCL) launches a token redemption program at the Blue Water Bridge effective November 1, 2021 and running up to December 31, 2022.

Holders of bridge tokens may exchange them for an equivalent number of crossings using the ConneXion pre-payment frequent traveller program. Every token redeemed will be credited to the holder’s ConneXion account at a cash value equal to the toll rate for a passenger vehicle crossing.

FBCL discontinued the sale of tokens on April 1, 2016 and has continued to honour their usage since. Modest quantities of tokens remain in circulation and continue to be used with reduced frequency. With technological changes coming to toll collection at the Blue Water Bridge, FBCL will cease to accept the use of tokens at the toll booths effective July 1, 2022. The highly popular, contactless ConneXion toll pre-payment program was launched on October 22, 2018 and, in addition to simplicity of use, offers travellers the greatest savings and discounts on toll rates. A new ConneXion account will be created for any redeemer of tokens that may not already have an existing ConneXion account.

Token holders may redeem their tokens at:

Blue Water Bridge Corporate Centre, 1555 Venetian Blvd, 4th floor, Point Edward, Ontario
(Office hours: 9AM – 4PM, Monday-Friday)

The Exchange House at Blue Water Bridge
(Hours: 9AM – 3PM, Sunday-Friday)

Duty Free Store at Blue Water Bridge
(Open 24 hours, 7 days / week)

Key program dates:

November 1, 2021: Token redemption program begins
July 1, 2022: Tokens no longer accepted at Blue Water Bridge
December 31, 2022: Token redemption program ends.
