Tweet your tolling question

Oct. 5, 2016 –  If you have a question about RiverLink, the start of tolling and how to open your RiverLink account, an answer is only a Tweet away. RiverLink, the new all-electronic tolling system making the Louisville – Southern Indiana Ohio River Bridges Project possible, will host a Twitter Chat on Thursday, October 6.

Two sessions are planned for Thursday, 11 a.m.-12 p.m. and 7-8 p.m. The live Twitter events will focus on answering drivers’ questions about tolling and how to set up their RiverLink accounts.  People can join the conversation on Twitter, @riverlinktolls or using #RiverLinkChat.

Tolling is expected to begin in December, sometime after cross-river capacity is added to the system. The improved John F. Kennedy Memorial Bridge and the new East End bridge are expected to be complete and fully open to traffic by late this year.

Opening an Account

RiverLink is the first all-electronic tolling system in the area. There are no toll booths, no coin machines, no lines and no stopping. Initial toll rates range from $2-$12. The lowest toll rates are for drivers with transponders. Drivers must set up a prepaid account to get a transponder.

Drivers can open a personal account online at www.riverlink.com, by phone at 855-RIV-LINK or in person at one of two RiverLink customer service centers. Businesses are encouraged to call 855-RIV-LINK to set up commercial accounts.

Customer service centers are located at 400 East Main Street in Louisville and 103 Quartermaster Court in Jeffersonville. The centers are open 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday – Friday. They are also open 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. Saturday.
