Midnight on Thursday (Feb. 28) is the cutoff for free registration and to secure the half-price introductory rate with the Port Mann Bridge tolling system, TReO.

Small vehicle drivers who do not sign up for the TReO decal by the deadline will pay $3 to cross the bridge starting on March 1. Meanwhile, registered users are being rewarded with a discounted toll rate of $1.50 until December 2013.

Carpoolers who sign up early will also cash in on some savings, a 25 per cent discount for using the High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lane on the Port Mann during peak hours.

More than 700,000 vehicles have registered for a TReO account since last September. The company says electronic vehicle registration helps the tolling system run more efficiently and keeps administrative costs to a minimum.

TReO Customer Service Centres will extend their hours of operation ahead of the Feb. 28 deadline to accommodate last-minute registrants. Drivers can sign up for an account at treo.ca. The website also provides information for in-person registration sites in Coquitlam and Surrey.
