Good to GO The Tacoma Narrows Bridge began using Good To Go! electronic tolling in July Over 70% of drivers crossing the Tacoma Narrows Bridge use the Good To Go! Pass to pay the toll automatically and without stopping – reducing their commute time. Good To Go! license plate accounts will be available in Until then, drivers with the Pass pay the toll without stopping. Those without the Pass must stop and pay at the tollbooth.
SR 520 Bridge All-electronic tolling is being put in place on the 520 Bridge in Spring of With no tollbooths, drivers will be able to travel across the bridge just like they do today. As drivers pass through the tolling area at highway speeds, the system automatically reads their Good To Go! Pass or license plate, and deducts the proper amount from their account. Those without the Pass such as visitors or other infrequent users of the bridge will be billed for their tolls by mail.
How Good To Go! Tolling works With Good To Go! all tolls are collected electronically. You can set up a prepaid Good To Go! account by either purchasing a transponder to mount in your vehicle or registering your license plate for photo identification. When driving on a tolled facility, your transponder or license plate is scanned and the correct toll is deducted from your prepaid account. Automatic replenishment allows you to easily manage your account by authorizing payments from your bank account or credit card.
