TODAY: Tolls Increase on Garden State Parkway, New Jersey Turnpike

It seems like every year there’s another toll hike on New Jersey’s highways, bridges and tunnels, and this year is no different.

Beginning today, Sunday, tolls on the Garden State Parkway, New Jersey Turnpike, and Atlantic City Expressway are going up, with toll rate increases for New Jersey bridges coming on January 8th.

Tolls on the Parkway are going up from $1.96 to $2.02 for EZPass customers and $2 to $2.10 for cash customers, while the toll plazas in Toms River will increase from 97 cents to $1.01 for EZPass customers and $1 to $1.05 for cash customers.

On the Turnpike, the average toll will go up from $4.95 to $5.10, and average Atlantic City Expressway tolls will rise from $2.44 to $2.53.

Meanwhile, tolls on bridges and tunnels controlled by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey will increase by $1 on January 8. This means off-peak hour EZPass tolls will increase from $11.75 to $12.75, peak hour tolls will go up from $13.75 to $14.75, and cash tolls will increase from $16 to $17.

The toll hikes come based on a rule from the Turnpike Authority and South Jersey Transportation Authority, which allow officials to raise tolls based on negative economic indicators.
