The Blue Water Bridge U.S.-Canada operated by the state of Michigan has truck tolls of $3.25 while the Canada-U.S. trips tolled by the Canadian BWBA are $3.50 with a prepaid account and $3.75 without. The Blue Water Bridge has no electronic toll discounts like the Rewards available at the Ambassador Bridge so for frequent users the Ambassador Bridge remains competitive on price, according to a Tollroads News report.
