Last call to turn in bridge tokens
The R.I. Turnpike and Bridge Authority is putting out the call for one last chance to redeem Newport Pell Bridge tokens. On May 15 at 2 p.m., RITBA will no longer accept tokens because all the collected tokens will be sold for their scrap metal value.
RITBA will pay 83 cents by check for each token returned by 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 15.
R.I. E-ZPass transponder holders may choose to apply a credit to their E-ZPass accounts at a redemption value of 91 cents each.
Tokens must be redeemed at RITBA’s customer service center on East Shore Road in Jamestown. The E-ZPass customer service center is open 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays.
Tokens will no longer be redeemed at Chambers of Commerce throughout the state.
