The FBI has issued a warning to the public about a growing text phishing scam (known as “smishing”). Scammers are impersonating tolling authorities and stating recipients owe an outstanding toll amount. Recipients are directed to click a link to settle the balance and avoid late fees.

If you receive a text like this and want to verify if you owe a balance, please check your account online at or call Bay City Bridge Partners customer service at 855-648-4330 weekdays between 9:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. ET.

The FBI is advising consumers not to click on the link and to delete the text. Fraudulent texts can be reported with the FBI’s Internet Crime Compliant Center (IC3) at,

BC Pass

ATTENTION:  Important Reminder About Your BC-PASS Account

There are two account types offered to BC-PASS customers:  Pre-Paid and Pay-As-You-Go.

Pre-Paid: $25 initial funding; $10 minimum balance threshold and $25 minimum replenishment. Customers also have the option of increasing initial funding, minimum balance thresholds and replenishment amounts based on expected usage. Your saved payment method will be used to replenish the account when the minimum balance is reached.

Pay-As-You-Go: No initial funding required. Usage will be deducted from the payment method saved to your BC-PASS account. Bay City resident accounts will default to this account type.

NOTE:  If you are a City of Bay City resident and prefer to maintain a Pre-Paid account type, you will have the option to remain or convert back to Pre-Paid status by contacting customer service or visiting our walk-in center.
