Drivers of electric vehicles (EVs) can now receive a discount on their toll when driving through the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel (DWT) between the United States and Canada.

The discount applies to drivers that are part of the Nexpress Program in eligible zero-emission battery electric and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.

It also only applies when travelling from Detroit to Windsor, and not from Windsor into Detroit.

According to DWT the new discount is just $0.25 however, dropping from $4.25USD/$5.25CAD to $4.00USD/$5.00 CAD.

“I am pleased to announce that we are offering an additional .25 cent discount for electric vehicle owners using the tunnel to go from Detroit to Windsor. In 2020, we launched our Environmental, Social and Governance initiative with a goal of becoming a more sustainable steward of our assets. This rate reduction is our way of thanking our customers who drive electric vehicles for doing their part to reduce our carbon footprint and creating a cleaner future for all Michiganders,” said Neal Belitsky, President and CEO of the Detroit Windsor Tunnel, in a press release (via ABC7)

The DWT website says the list of eligible vehicles is the same as the one used by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) for carpool eligible vehicles listed as having “electric” or “hydrogen” fuel types.

The list includes all Tesla models and variants from the Roadster to the Model S, Model 3, Model X, and Model Y.
