Tolls Increases At Tunnels And Bridges Take Effect For Cash And E-ZPass Users

When passing the Outerbridge or other tunnels and bridges, get ready to pay more. This morning, tolls at the George Washington Bridge, Holland Tunnel, Lincoln Tunnel, Goethals Bridge, Bayonne Bridge and Outerbridge Crossing all rose $4 for cash payers, from $8 to $12. For trucks, the charge is now $13 per axle.

E-ZPass users will also see a raise, from $8 to $9.50. (Carpool users still receive a discount. See information here).

The PATH train also increased its tolls this morning by 25 cents, to $2. It will increase another 75 cents over the next 4 years.

By the time the tolls finish rising in 2015, as originally planned, the price to cross a bridge or tunnel will be $12.50 for E-ZPass users during peak hours, and $15 for cash payers.

As reported last month, Governors Chirstie and Coumo approved the hikes which they say will help maintain the bridges and tunnels.

  1. And again they say the money is NEEDED for the repairs of the bridges, tunnels and road ways. I am ok with that, BUT, I know where the money will really go, it will go to the executives for pay raises and bonuses and if that happens then people should be fired. We are in a recession no one should get pay raises, especially with public money.

  2. I just drove the gwb last night and I was so disgusted whoever doesn’t have ezpass whether you travel or not get it you’ll save on the long run

  3. Number#12
    Correction, Both unions and the Gov. and destroying the state. In the papers both NY and NJ Gov’s agreed to it. However it seems only bridges and tunnels that connect NJ and NY got raised. if Gov. Christie said no, it would have never happened.

  4. The tolls are supposed to pay for the bridges’ maintenance, even if that includes bonuses… But they are not intended to pay for WTC reconstruction or to secure other union jobs. That’s where the problem lies.
