Transferrable Transponders Available
For Vehicles Using the Hood River-White Salmon Interstate Bridge
Hood River-White Salmon Bridge customers are advised the Port of Hood River Commission has approved the use of new transponders associated with the electronic tolling system. The new transponders are not permanently affixed to the windshield and may be transferred between different vehicles using the same account. A revised policy for all transponders and pricing will be effective January 1, 2014.
The revised policy states that, for new BreezeBy accounts, the first transferrable transponder on the account will be issued at no cost to the customer. Additional transponders will be available for purchase at a cost of $30.00.
Existing BreezeBy customers do not need to replace transponders currently in use; however, if the new transferrable transponder is desired, the customer can turn in their existing transponder and pay the difference of $15.00. The new policy eliminates the provision for free transponders, so existing account holders will now need to purchase additional transponders added to their account after January 1.
If you have questions, please call the Port office at (541) 386-1645.

WELCOME TO THE PORT OF HOOD RIVER
The Port of Hood River was created and incorporated
on July 28, 1933 as a result of the Bonneville Dam Project,
due to the expressed desire by the Oregon State Legislature
and the United States Government to develop industrial
land in the Columbia River Basin for jobs and economic
development. The Port today is governed by its Commission
composed of five elected members who continue to guide
efforts to initiate, promote and maintain quality of
life and a healthy economy throughout the Port District
and the Columbia River Gorge.
