Starting this Saturday, March 21st, the Mackinac Bridge will not be accepting cash, to cross over.
This another safety measure put forth by Governor Whitmer and Michigan’s Department of Health and Human Services, to slow the spread of COVID-19.
Until further notice, drivers will have to pay their toll with a credit/debit card, MacPass or Window sticker.
Mackinac Bridge Authority Executive Secretary Kim Nowack said she realizes this is an inconvenience to many drivers, but it is one more step we can take, to slow the spread of COVID-19.
The no cash policy will be evaluated, as the COVID-19 outbreak evolves.
Approximately 64% of drivers pay their toll with cash, 7% pay with a card and the remaining 29% have a MacPass or window sticker.
Toll collectors will also hold the card reader, so they don’t have to touch your card.
If you don’t have a card, MacPass or window sticker, toll collectors will have instructions on what to do.
