Dec. 31 is last day to redeem bridge tokens

The R.I. Turnpike and Bridge Authority will no longer redeem Newport Pell Bridge tokens after Dec. 31.

RITBA replaced the token toll-payment system with EZPass in January, 2009.

RITBA will pay 83 cents by check for each token returned by 5 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 31. R.I. EZPass holders may choose to apply a credit to their EZPass accounts. If they choose this option, the redemption value of each token will be 91 cents.

Tokens may be redeemed at RITBA’s customer service center on East Shore Road in Jamestown. The EZPass customer service center is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays.

Call 423-0800 or visit www.ritba.org for more information.
