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.

Update: February

Important Updates Regarding Toll Transactions and Billing

Beginning February 20, Bay City Bridge Partners will activate auto-replenishment for BC-PASS customers who selected this account option. The auto-replenish feature will use the payment method saved on the account to pay any negative balance up to the balance threshold of $10. Refer to the FAQs located at for more details on how auto-replenishment works. We strongly recommend customers log into their account and review their current balance.

In the coming weeks, Pay-by-Mail statements with balance due information will also be issued to customers who have traveled over Liberty Bridge without a transponder. These will be mailed to the address where each vehicle is registered and will include a special offer to reduce the bill to the lower transponder rate by creating a BC-PASS account for future travel over the bridges. The offer is only valid for transactions on the first invoice, and payment in full of the adjusted balance is required. Customers can visit 300 Center Ave, Suite 101 (open Mon-Thurs 8:30am-6pm, Fri 8:30am-4:30pm) or call 855-648-4330 (M-F 9am-7pm) to open an account and redeem this offer.

The following instructions are designed to help both BC-PASS and Pay-by-Mail customers. In addition, answers to frequently asked questions have been updated here.


BC-PASS Account Customers

City of Bay City residents with valid BC-PASS accounts and properly installed transponders driving Class 1 passenger vehicles will enjoy free tolling on Class 1 vehicles until 2028.

City of Bay City residents are strongly encouraged to review their accounts.

Those who have questions or need assistance with payments are encouraged to stop in and visit the Bay City Bridge Partners Customer Service Center, 300 Center Avenue, Suite 101 (open Mon-Thurs 8:30am-6pm and Fri 8:30am-4:30pm) or call customer service at 855-648-4330 (M-F 9am-7pm).
