Toll Schedule 2021
Re: Change in Toll Rates Effective August 9, 2021, Cash Accepted to Year's End
Dear Valued Customers,
We would like to advise you that on August 9, 2021 tolls on the Canadian side of the Windsor Detroit Tunnel will be adjusted to harmonize with the USD toll rates charged on the Detroit side of the Tunnel and to reflect the current foreign exchange for CAD toll rates.
This is the first rate increase we’ve had in six years,” said Windsor-Detroit Borderlink Limited (WDBL) Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Carolyn Brown. “During that time, we’ve spent 20 million dollars in upgrades to the tunnel.” The WDBL Board opted not to increase tolls while the ceiling was under construction and not operating on a 24/7 basis. Now that the ceiling project has been successfully completed, the board has approved toll rate changes to synchronize with the rates charged in Detroit and to reflect the current foreign exchange rate.

Travellers are reminded of the savings available when using NEXPRESS® Toll.
NEXPRESS® Toll is a prepaid program that allows you to drive through all toll lanes hassle free. Travellers who cross using NEXPRESS® Toll pay 21% less than the regular fare. Finally, to ensure that tolls keep pace with inflation, the WDBL Board approved a policy that provides that toll rates be increased across the board by 2% every year.
Cash Accepted to Year’s End
Along with reopening to the fully vaccinated, tunnel operators on the Canadian side of the border will be reinstating the collection of cash tolls and will continue to accept cash tolls until the end of the year, at which point cash collection will cease as a means of payment.
“From our perspective, this intervening period will allow that percentage of our customer base who previously paid by cash time to enrol in the NEXPRESS® Toll or to transition to a cashless payment option, such as credit cards or debit cards.” said Brown.
Please note: Collection on the U.S. side of the tunnel will not have a grace period, as the operators on the U.S. side intend to continue a cashless operation when the border restrictions are lifted in August.
