Transport Services

At a meeting of the Mackinac Bridge Authority (MBA) meeting on October 14, the board decided to reinstate their transport services which include the driver assistance, the pedestrian transport, the bicycle transport, and the snowmobile transport service. There are some changes to address concerns staff concerns and the cost to provide these services. Find the press release here.

Driver Assistance Service

Drivers who do not feel comfortable driving across the Mackinac Bridge can have staff from the Mackinac Bridge drive their vehicle. The fee for this service is $10, plus the appropriate toll for the vehicle driven. Drivers must be 18 years of age or older. The required liability waiver form has been updated, and staff will complete a checklist of several items the customer must agree to, including allowing for adjustments of mirrors and the driver’s seat, using a dash camera to record the inside of the vehicle during the crossing, keeping any animals in the vehicle restrained, having all occupants wear a mask covering their nose and mouth, and allowing the vehicle to be cleaned before crossing.
