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.

Thank You for Your Patience


Customers are responding to our initial round of toll statements, which consisted of thousands of invoices in a matter of days. Those who did not establish a BC-PASS account — despite our numerous and consistent outreach efforts — are taking advantage of our promotional offer and converting their accounts to a BC-PASS which also includes a reduction of their toll bill. Eligible City of Bay City residents are also being assisted with clearing any toll transactions, establishing a BC-PASS account, and receiving their free transponder which will be used to maintain their resident discount going forward. We are helping each customer individually and, with each interaction, we are taking the opportunity to educate the community on how all-electronic tolling works. We appreciate everyone’s patience.
