MAC Pass Toll Card Being Slowly Replaced
The Mackinac Bridge Authority says "the MacPass toll card is being replaced with a windshield-mounted sticker for customer convenience, and for a limited time they are available for free."
"Unlike the old MacPass cards that required drivers to roll down their window and hold the card near the reader device, the new system will automatically scan the windshield sticker when drivers pull up to the toll booths," said MBA Executive Secretary Kim Nowack. "Drivers still need to stop and wait for the gate to rise before proceeding, but the new process will speed transactions for frequent customers." -Mackinac Bridge Authority
The MBA has begun to replace the current MacPass cards with the new stickers "for the past few months and is now encouraging others to make the switch as well." They want customers to go to the MacPass website to sign up for an account and receive stickers in the mail.
The stickers are part of a new tolling software system installed last fall. Anyone can open a MacPass account, which allows for online deposits and transaction information. MacPass stickers are currently free but will be $1 each after July 1, 2020. Also, the Bridge does not accept I-Pass, E-ZPass, SunPass, etc.
