Bestpass Bridges Three Border-Crossings

ALBANY, NY— Want to save money? Want to save time? Toll management and discount services are now available at Niagara Falls Bridge Commission (NFBC) international border crossings.

NFBC-managed Rainbow, Whirlpool, and Lewiston-Queenston international bridges, which span the border between the U.S. and Canada, are now part of the Bestpass toll service.

The Bestpass program gives bulk toll-purchasing and streamlined toll management services to commercial fleets and owner-ops.

Here's how it works:

  • Simplified tolling process: Bestpass works with toll authorities to incorporate all your tolls and weigh station bypass so you can move seamlessly throughout the U.S.;
  • Weigh station bypass: Bestpass works with all major bypass service providers (PrePass, Norpass, NCpas, NJPass) so that you can combine tolling coverage and discounts with national weigh station bypass on one transponder;
  • Discounted tolls: Bestpass uses its bulk purchasing power to let you save on toll roads with additional discounts on the New York State Thruway, Pennsylvania Turnpike, New Jersey Turnpike, NYC Bridges and Tunnels, Maryland Transportation Authority and Colorado E470.

“The addition of NFBC tolls to the E-ZPass network will further streamline toll management for our customers using those border crossings,” said John Andrews, president of Bestpass. “These additional tolling locations are the latest in our ongoing expansion of partnerships with highway and toll authorities, and as we continue to expand we are expecting more key additions to the Bestpass service network in the upcoming months.”

That means that fleets and drivers using Bestpass can use their existing Bestpass transponders at NFBC bridges and any service related issues at NFBC tolls can now be handled by the Bestpass service center.

The Rainbow and Whirlpool Bridges aren't open to commercial traffic so the press release really means little.
