Statement by Gov. Phil Murphy on Planned Vote to Reinstate the Carpool Discount at Hudson River Crossings by the Port Authority of NY and NJ

“Moving goods and people across the Hudson is existential for our region. Doing this effectively, while reducing traffic and harmful emissions, is a win for both our commuters and our region’s health, while extending the life of our infrastructure. I previously urged the Port Authority to rethink eliminating the carpool discount, and to incent commuters to drive together and reduce the number of cars on the road.

“I am thrilled that the Port Authority has listened to my concerns, as well as those of the commuters, advocates, and elected officials, and will offer a revised plan for a Board vote that will maintain the discount while the Port Authority investigates how to implement the discount once cashless tolling is installed at all of its crossings.”
