Cashless Toll and Travel Update

The Tunnel will be open for vaccinated nonessential travel to Canada effective August 9, 2021. Prior to crossing the border, American visitors to Canada should consult the Public Health Agency of Canada website to ensure that they meet the eligibility criteria to enter Canada. The Tunnel will continue to keep travelers updated as details emerge and when additional travel restrictions are lifted.

Additionally, the tunnel will continue cashless tolling on the Detroit side of the border.

The new process is simple: Travelers can sign up for a Nexpress account here, load their account, and receive a toll discount on every trip. Customers can continue to use credit and debit cards or mobile payments in the lane.

Travelers can get real-time updates and traffic information by visiting this website or on Twitter @DetWinTunnel.
