E-ZPass offers discounts at bridge and tunnel crossings in the region. And if you travel across the Goethals Bridge, Bayonne Bridge, or Outerbridge Crossing, enrollment in the Port Authority NY/NJ Staten Island Bridges Plan (NY/NJ SIB Plan) is a great way to save money.
- $4.75 per trip at the Goethals Bridge, Bayonne Bridge and Outerbridge Crossing, provided you make at least three New York-bound trips in a calendar month. After the completion of the third trip at these three crossings in any calendar month, toll charges for all trips made at these crossings within the calendar month will be processed at the NY/NJ SIB Plan rate ($4.75 per trip). For the month of August 2012, the three New York-bound trip minimum has been waived. Customers who enroll or are already enrolled in the NY/NJ SIB Plan and make one or two New York-trips at the Goethals Bridge, Bayonne Bridge and Outerbridge Crossing will be charged the $4.75 plan rate for those trips.
- All E-ZPass tags on the account count towards the minimum trip requirement, so multiple-driver households have an easy way to save with the NY/NJ SIB Plan.
- If no trips are made across the Goethals Bridge, Bayonne Bridge or Outerbridge Crossing in a calendar month, no plan-related charges will be made to your E-ZPass account.
- If one or two trips are made across the Goethals Bridge, Bayonne Bridge or Outerbridge Crossing in a calendar month, the toll for those trips will be reposted to your account at the E-ZPass toll rate, based on the time the trip was made (currently $7.50 during off-peak hours and $9.50 during peak hours).

What about if i do carpool?
Will there ever be any discounts for the Verrezano Bridge?
If you do carpool, you’ll just get the carpool rate (better of the 2 deals). As for reaching 3 trips for the month to get the reduced rate (after August), I believe 3 carpool trips won’t qualify.
The question is is there any reason not to add it on
WHERE IS THE SIGNUP ON
THEIR SITE ? /
thanks! I just did it. It’s a choice by the plans select pasi
if you’re signed up for car pool, do you lose the plan if you sign up for this plan?
FYI: If you use an NJ ez-pass, the vrzno will be full price. Just sign-up for the NY ez-pass.
Yukul, you do not lose your carpool plan
