SR 99 Tunnel Toll Rates

The SR 99 tunnel will be free to use when it opens. Tolling is expected to begin as soon as this summer.

Toll rates will change based on time of day, with lower toll rates on nights and weekends. Tolls are collected in both directions as you exit the tunnel.  Drivers without a Good To Go! account pay an extra $2 per toll.

Exemptions

Certain vehicles can travel toll-free if they meet the specific requirements outlined below. A Good To Go! account and pass is required in order to drive for free. Please contact Good To Go! customer service for more information.

  • Buses: Public transit and school buses drive for free at all times. Some privately owned buses which serve the public, students, or employees may also drive for free.
  • Vanpools: Vanpools always drive for free on all toll roads. Individual drivers do not need to do anything to claim an exemption, this is taken care of by the transit agency.
  • Emergency vehicles: Emergency vehicles and incident response vehicles can drive for free when they are on-duty or operating in an official capacity. 

Toll rate setting and process

The Washington State Transportation Commission (WSTC) works with WSDOT and the public to establish toll rates for all highways and bridges in Washington State. The WSTC reviews traffic and revenue each year to determine whether new toll rates are needed to cover operational costs and debt payments. This review process starts in the fall and, if new rates are adopted, they are in effect the following July. Learn more about toll rate setting process .
