EZ Pass Tolls Go Up Sunday
Tolls for EZ Pass users on Port Authority bridges and tunnels go up on Sunday.
The cost to use the Lincoln & Holland tunnels, the George Washington, Bayonne & Goethals bridges, and the Outerbridge Crossing goes up by 75 cents at 3 a.m. meaning it will cost cars $9 off peak and $11 peak. The Staten Island Bridges Pass will go up by 25 cents.
Cash tolls will remain unaffected.
The increase is part of the Authority’s fiscal health plan that will helps fund a number of projects including rehabilitating the Lincoln Tunnel helix, raising the Bayonne Bridge, modernizations of PATH trains and airport runways and completion of the World Trade Center.
Drivers on the New Jersey Turnpike and Garden State Parkway are safe from any toll increases until 2020. Donna Manuelli, the New Jersey Turnpike Authority’s chief financial officer tells the Press of Atlantic City existing rates will support the authority’s planned projects through at least 2020. Tolls last went up in 2012.
