BUFFALO, NY/FORT ERIE, ON. – Again this year, the Buffalo and Fort Erie Public Bridge Authority (Peace Bridge Authority) announces that it will not charge tolls on Thursday, December 25, in celebration of the Christmas holiday. The toll-free period will be in effect for 24 hours beginning at 12 AM Christmas morning.

“As a 24 hour per day, people-driven operation we wanted to look at ways that we could say thank you to our customers and our employees,” said Ken Schoetz the Peace Bridge Authority’s Chairman. “By not charging tolls on Christmas, we’re able to spread some holiday cheer and give as many of our employees as possible an opportunity to spend the day with their families.”
