Port Mann Bridge: The first batch of invoices or statements are now going out but many users won't have to pay anything yet.

First Port Mann Bridge toll bills in the mail

Most registered bridge users won't owe anything yet thanks to credit

The first batch of more than 620,000 monthly statements or invoices are being mailed out to users of the new Port Mann Bridge.

Most won’t owe anything yet because they haven’t used up all of the $30 credit for 20 free trips they got for registering by Dec. 1 with the TReO electronic tolling system.

Registered customers who haven’t crossed the bridge yet won’t get a statement but can check their account online at www.treo.ca.

About 370,000 statements are going out to registered TReO customers – whose credit cards or bank accounts are automatically debited for tolls after the credit runs out.

Another 250,000 invoices are being mailed to unregistered drivers who have used the bridge and were detected by licence plate cameras.

With more than two million crossings and transactions happening each month, TReO officials say they expect some errors will turn up.

Unregistered car drivers will see their tolls jump to $3 in March if they don’t sign up before then. Those who do register by the end of February lock in the $1.50 introductory toll on regular vehicles for a full year.
