Station Dissects Ohio River Bridges Frequent-User Discount

WHAS News looks at the math behind the Ohio River Bridges frequent-user toll discount program. ORB spokesperson Mindy Peterson explains that motorists who make 40 one-way trips or 20 roundtrips across the bridges in a calendar month will receive a $40 credit and a $1 discount on every additional trip. The station notes, however, that only five calendar months have more than 20 workdays, and the other seven have 20 workdays or less. “Peterson admitted the threshold for the discount is extremely tight,” but she noted that “few” toll systems across the country make a similar discount offer and “the threshold of 40 one-way trips in a calendar month is on par with other systems.”
