From The Sun (May 14, 2016):
… the Pattullo Bridge rehabilitation project … means more revenue for the tolled Port Mann, which charges $3.15 per crossing for a small car and has struggled to lure drivers from free alternatives such as the Pattullo and Alex Fraser bridges.
Earlier this year, TI Corp. offered a $10 incentive to get drivers to sign up for electronic billing, following provincial budget estimates that showed the Port Mann had lost $86 million last year, with projected losses of $100 million in each of the next three years, pushing its total debt to $3.68 billion by 2018.
The losses are significantly higher than what was predicted in 2012-13, when the corporation forecast the net loss for 2014-15 would be $28.3 million. TI Corp. relies on the Port Mann tolls to pay off debt on the $3.3-billion bridge.
