Goethals, Bayonne and Outerbridge Crossing Tolls to Drop
Monday, January 23, 2012
Commuters who use E-ZPass to cross the Goethals and Bayonne Bridges and Outerbridge Crossing will see tolls cut in half starting next month.
Beginning February 1, E-ZPass users with non-commercial plates who enroll in a new plan will pay $47.50 for 10 trips in a 30-day period, a 50 percent savings on the normal rate.
Drivers who commute five times a week over the crossings will save nearly $1,200 a year on their E-ZPass rush hour tolls, and $1,800 a year on the cash tolls.
The plan was developed at the request of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo following the August 2011 toll increase.
