Drivers crossing the Port Mann Bridge will be pay half of the originally proposed toll. The new introductory toll price will be $1.50 per trip.

In an article in The Vancouver Sun Transportation Minster Mary Polak said that “the incentives are intended to make the crossing more affordable for commuters and families, and not to shore up Liberal votes ahead of next spring’s provincial election.”

The toll will be available until February 2013. In March, the toll will go up to $3.00 unless drivers sign up for an electronic tolling account that will let them cross the bridge at the half-price rate until November 2013.

For those in the real estate and development industry, the new tolls, and the bridge itself, raise questions about what impact these changes will have on the neighbourhoods and suburbs in the surrounding areas.
