Bridge of the Gods Toll Increase July 1 2016

Post by rcPDX » July 3rd, 2016, 4:13 pm

In the field guide, where ever the Bridge of the Gods toll is mentioned at $1, it's now generally $2 for passenger cars, as of July 1. There are variations depending on if you're a local or if you buy a book, but for the average hiker and for the field guide, the text needs to be updated to $2.00.

Thanks in advance for the update.

Any idea how they intend to handle the books (both existing and new purchases) going forward? I bought one of those 20 crossing books for $15 a couple months ago, knowing this change was very likely. Thanks!

I cross that bridge a lot. I wish I had known before about the increase and the pass packages.

Okay, this appears to be the new fee table, and it looks like coupon books will be available for $1 per crossing so this works out OK for regular travelers.

Thanks, Roberta, for the heads up. I think I've made all the changes needed. Let us know if there's anything we've missed.
