NY Port Authority Raises Tolls on Bridges, Tunnels

The higher toll hit trucks or towing combinations with six or more axles the hardest with an increase of $12.

Get ready to pay more when you use Port Authority bridges and tunnels between New York and New Jersey as the third of five scheduled annual toll hikes went into effect yesterday on the Port Authority owned infrastructures including the Holland Tunnel, the Lincoln Tunnel and the George Washington, Outerbridge, Goethals and Bayonne bridges.

Cars bearing E-ZPass tags will pay 75 cents more when they cross the George Washington, Bayonne and Goethals bridges and Outerbridge Crossing, or enter the Lincoln and Holland tunnels. That makes the E-ZPass peak round-trip toll $11, with the off-peak toll at $9. The heaviest burden will be borne by trucks or towing combinations with six or more axles. Their off-peak E-ZPass rate will rise from $66 to $78 and the peak E-ZPass rate will rise $12 to $84.
