When the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel reopens on Aug. 9, crosser will need proof of COVID-19 vaccination and a form of payment that isn’t cash to cross into Canada.
The new cashless process is simple: Travelers can sign up for a Nexpress account, load up their account and receive a toll discount on every trip. Additionally, customers can continue to use credit and debit cards or mobile payments in the lane.
Transit Windsor’s tunnel bus service currently remains suspended.
To cross into Canada, travelers must provide proof of their vaccination against COVID-19 and be permanent U.S. residents.
Restrictions for nonessential travel were put into place in March 2020 because of the COVID-19 crisis, but commercial travel deemed essential was allowed to continue. Before the pandemic, the tunnel served 12,000 daily and 4 million annual customers.
