I just got charged $1 BZ to cross the new bridge on my bike. I thought bikes and pedestrians were free and you only had to pay for golfcarts. The toll taker told me I couldn't cross without paying.

it has never been free, was always $1 BZ to cross even before. $0.50 is a bargain. They need to collect for any upkeep and the toll takers pay!

The pull ferry charged SOME bicycles and some pedestrians $1.00. It has been widely publicized that ONLY golf carts would be charged for crossing the bridge. I think you need to put in a call to the Mayoress' office - Monday - they are partying tonight.

After my wife gets done shopping, I hope I've still got 50 cents to pay the toll. I suppose the question should be, if she doesn't have 50 cents left after shopping, will she have to swim? laugh laugh

Then, perhaps I should charge her for my "services". Not bragging, just stating the facts. laugh laugh laugh lol!!! Oh fyi, I do pick up my things, do the wash occassionally, do my own dishes, and I cook. Which ever one of us gets home from work first, cooks dinner. It's worked for us for 31 years.

Kra-Z-K,

I think the point is - they are charging Gringo's and not anybody who "looks" Belizean. We live here and doing volunteer work so every dollar counts.
