Brace yourself: First toll bills sent to 520 pay-by-mail customers
If you drove the 520 floating bridge in the past few weeks without a Good To Go pass, expect a bill to come in the mail soon. The State Department of Transportation sent out 19,000 bills to drivers that will arrive this week.
That might seem like a lot, but it’s a number far less than officials expected.
The Department of Transportation was prepared to handle 40-thousand pay by mail transactions every day, but the agency says that thanks to wide use of the good to go pass, officials have had to process far fewer paper bills.
One reason could be the price. Drivers can save $1.50 on each toll if they pay in advance with the good to go pass.
