FAQs

How is the toll calculated for an RV towing a car?
Tolls are charged based on the number of axles on a vehicle. A two-axled RV would be charged the same amount as a car. An extra charge would be added for the additional axles of the tow car and/or trailer.
Is it possible to buy a season or frequent user pass that offers discounted toll rates?
The Confederation Bridge does not offer discounted passages in order to treat all customers fairly.
Is it necessary to reserve a spot for the crossing, as you would for a ferry?
The Confederation Bridge operates 24-hours a day, seven days a week. Reservations are not required.
I travelled to Prince Edward Island from Nova Scotia via the ferry and will be departing the Island via the Confederation Bridge. Where do I pay my fare for the ferry crossing?
Like Confederation Bridge, ferry fares are calculated for a round-trip and collected only when departing Prince Edward Island. Visitors who arrive on PEI via the ferry and depart via the Confederation Bridge will pay the bridge toll only, a savings of 37%* versus the alternative!

*percent savings based on Northumberland Ferries’ 2012 fare for vehicles up to 20’ in length
Do toll rates ever change?
Toll rates are reviewed on an annual basis and are adjusted on January 1 based on the rate of inflation.
