All pre-paid toll accounts at the Mackinac Bridge are now called Mac Pass. The two different types of cards and their description are listed below.
Mac Pass Discounted Toll Cards
Discounted toll cards can be used by passenger vehicles in any lane in the direction of travel for a discounted fare. Discounted toll cards currently do not have an expiration date. You can purchase a discounted toll card for a minimum of $90, which includes a one-time $10 card purchase fee and $80 in crossing credits. The minimum amount for subsequent deposits to your account is $50. Discounted toll cards must be purchased at the customer service window in the Mackinac Bridge Authority administration building. The toll booths accept cash only on subsequent deposits. Our service window accepts cash, check, or credit card. Towing trailers or other vehicles is not allowed with these cards.
