SR 520 Bridge Tolling Starts Dec. 29
Washington State Departmrnt of Transportation is reminding that all-electronic tolling on the SR 520 Bridge will start on Thursday, December 29. If drivers haven’t already purchased a Good To Go! pass, which helps them get the best toll rate, they are advised to get their pass now:
- Purchase the popular $5 sticker pass at participating Safeway, Costco, QFC or Fred Meyer stores then activate it online. Visit www.wsdot.wa.gov/goodtogo/retail for a list of retail locations.
- Buy any of five pass options online at GoodToGo520.org.
- Visit a full service Customer Service Center or a Mobile Customer Service Center. Find locations and hours at www.wsdot.wa.gov/goodtogo/contacts.htm.
More than 100,000 Good To Go! accounts have been set up since February. However, we still expect a surge of customers to register and activate accounts this month. To prepare for the surge, we have extended call center hours and hired extra customer service staff. Despite these efforts, people may experience delays, particularly between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m.
As a reminder, travelers now have even more options for getting across the SR 520 Bridge. King County Metro and Sound Transit added 130 daily bus trips across the bridge. Transit buses now offer over 700 trips across the bridge each work day. More than 90 vanpools cross the bridge daily and additional vans are available. More information about these and other options is available from King County Metro.
