There are two ways to cross the Humber Bridge. Customers who have a HumberTag account/ approved concessions/motorcycles are able to use the Taglane (Open Road Toll). The HumberTag is a pre-paid account that enables account holders to travel through the toll plaza without stopping. Payments are deducted from their account automatically each time they travel across the Bridge.

Customers without a HumberTag should stop at one of the manned tollbooths instead.

aWhy Are You No Longer Accepting Cash When Shops and Other Businesses Still Are?

With Covid still a problem, we want everyone to be safe. People in shops often have time to sanitise between transactions where cash is involved. Pre-lockdown, this wouldn’t have been possible for our staff. Therefore, the situation is different. HBB staff are taking cash, giving change, taking further cash, etc, without having time to sanitise, and that would put them and our customers at risk. The goal is to minimise contact to keep everyone safe.

To make card payments as safe as possible, we have installed new card payment machines on the outside of the booths for ease of access. These accept both contactless and chip and pin and we also accept Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Samsung Pay.

People can alsoapply for a HumberTagas the most efficient and cheapest way to cross the bridge receiving a 10% discount on all crossings.

There are other benefits too. Not taking cash results in a saving of 20 tonnes of carbon per year, so it helps us meet our sustainability goals.

aIsn’t This Penalising People Who Want to Use Cash?

Our goal is to keep all bridge users and our staff as safe as we can.

Lockdown has shown that the vast, vast, majority of HB users can manage payments via card or the Tag. This is safer for them, our staff, and is more efficient.

We also feel cash usage will never return to pre-lockdown levels as people prefer contactless ways to pay. The prevailing trend is moving to a cashless society.


aWhat If I Don’t Have a Contactless Card or a Tag?

If someone really doesn’t have the means to pay, we would encourage them to ring ourCustomer Servicesteam (01482 647161) and we will work with them to find the best way to take payment.


aWill People Be Given Longer to Pay If They Go Through the Tag Lane (Open Road Toll) Without a Tag?

We have already increased the window for payment from24 hoursbefore lockdown to72 hoursnow, and that is where it will remain.

However, the Tag Lane is for tag users only. If you do not have a HumberTag, you must stick to using the toll booth lanes, orapply for a HumberTag.


aYou Have ANPR: Why Not Just Let Everyone Use the Tag Lane?

Our system is not designed for high numbers of motorists without a Tag to use the Tag Lanes. If you do not have a HumberTag, you must stick to using the toll booth lanes, orapply for a HumberTag.
