Higher taxes. Higher gas
prices. It seems more now than ever, everything is just getting more
expensive by the minute! Being residents of the New York and New Jersey,
many have already experienced the toll fare hikes for tunnels and
bridges as of September of 2011.
Important Facts Regarding the Tunnel/Bridge Toll Increase:
- Port Authority of New York and New Jersey approved the toll hike. Increase began on September 18, 2011
- Tolls for cars with EZ Pass will increase $1.50 in September and 75 cents each December from 2012-2015.
- Drivers without EZ Pass will pay an additional $2 surcharge that
will be rounded up to the nearest dollar to reduce the burden on toll
takers fumbling with quarters and to encourage EZ Pass use.
- Trucks with EZ Pass = additional $2 per axle in September from 2012-2015.
- Non EZ Pass trucks = additional $3 axle cash penalty.
- PATH fares currently $1.75, will increase 25 cents per year for four years.
