BUFFALO, NY/FORT ERIE, ON – The Buffalo and Fort Erie Public Bridge Authority (Peace Bridge Authority) is pleased to announce that it will not charge tolls on Thursday, December 25, 2014, in celebration of the Christmas holiday. The toll-free period will be in effect for 24 hours beginning at 12:00 a.m. Christmas morning.

“Not charging tolls on Christmas Day is a nice way to conclude the year and say thank you to our employees and customers,” said Authority General Manager Ron Rienas.“And we’ll also have the bridge illuminated in festive holiday colors that same evening.”
