DETROIT – Traveling from Detroit to Windsor through the tunnel is going to cost you a bit more starting Jan. 15.

The Detroit Windsor Tunnel (DWT) announced that the toll to travel from Detroit to Windsor will increase by about $1 for most automobiles crossing into Canada, taking effect on Sunday, Jan. 15.

“Even with the increase, I am pleased that the tunnel will remain the most cost-effective way to travel between Detroit and Windsor for all vehicle classes,” said Neal Belitsky, CEO of the Detroit Windsor Tunnel. “These inflationary increases and exchange adjustments will cover wage increases and the additional costs associated with maintaining and operating the tunnel.”

The rate for automobiles, pickups, favs and RVs paying electronically is increasing from $5.50 to $6.50. Fees to go from Windsor to Detroit remain unchanged.
