Toll Hikes Take Effect On Turnpike And Parkway As Of January 1st
If you heard Bill and I talking about the toll hikes yesterday but wondering exactly how much they’ll be for your particular commute, here you go.
First the Parkway.
We urge you to pay close attention if you’re a cash customer as the Parkway continues to have poorly maintained exact change machines which aren’t registering your payment. And they continue to bully you and tell you you’re a scofflaw when you’ve done nothing wrong. So that’s already bad enough. You don’t want to be caught with the wrong amount of coins when the toll hike goes through on the 1st. Then their punitive $50 demand will be inescapable.
Then there’s the Turnpike.
53% toll hikes here. As Simon And Garfunkel said, counting the cars on the New Jersey Turnpike they’ve all gone to look for America. Better look for some extra money while you’re at it.
