Comdata Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Ceridian Corporation, has announced the Comdata Card is now accepted at the Ambassador Bridge, the international crossing located between Detroit, Mich. and Windsor, Ont. Drivers can now swipe a Comdata Card to pay for tolls. Product fees apply.
“Comdata is pleased to expand our transportation expense management footprint so drivers can pay electronically and minimize cash advances,” said Scott Phillips, senior vice president and general manager, Comdata. “Trucking companies will be able to better manage their driver expense, because the data elements will be captured and reported back, just like fuel purchases.”
“We are very excited about our relationship with Comdata and the new opportunity that allows drivers to just swipe and go,” said Dan Stamper, president of Ambassador Bridge. “This is yet one more tool that will speed up the process of crossing between the U.S. and Canada. Drivers no longer need to carry cash or worry about lost receipts.”
