#506121 - 07/26/15 01:33 AM Bridge toll to North Isalnd
CBXBob Offline
I've made three trips across the bridge to visit businesses North of the bridge in my rented golf cart, and so far have paid the toll both ways for a total of $30 Bzd. Can anyone explain what this about, and is there a monthly pass? I'm coming to the end of my stay here, but curious, and an explanation may help future visitors. Thanks in advance.
Bob

I am a new owner and am North of the bridge. I will let the other members "chime in" BUT you're complaining about $15.00 U.S.... You are paying a "toll" for the cost of the bridge. Not too long ago there was some type of "raft" that took you across. Hey forum members; how much did that cost?
The ONLY complaint I have about the toll is that you no longer can buy a round trip or a "bunch" of trips. I used to purchase $20.00 U.S.at a time to avoid the hassle of paying each time.

Where did you hear me "complain" in my post? I asked a question.

I think the toll is far to high. But it is what is. $10 bz round trip, or a monthly pass for $150 bz.
The trucks pay anywhere from $25 to $150 !

Sorry Bob, you are correct; there was no complaint.

Other forum members; question. What was the "ferry method" before the bridge and how much did it cost? Just curious.

There was a pontoon contraption with a rope and chain and two men who pulled the thing across the river. Any more than two carts at a time was dangerous, but often the limits were pushed. People and bicycles also jammed on willy nilly. In a strong wind or current this was a hard vessel to control. Long ago it was sufficient for the scant traffic it served. It was not manned at night. Eventually it became a real safety hazard. Cost was $5 bz per cart each way.
