TOLL HIKE - in case you forgot - GSP NJ Turnpike

New rates begin Dec. 1

Toll hikes approved for Parkway, Turnpike, A.C. Expressway

The Expressway increase raises the Egg Harbor Plaza toll from its $2 to $3. Tolls at most ramps along the Expressway will rise from 50 cents to 75 cents.

Under the plan the Turnpike Authority approved, a driver now paying $1.20 for the average 23-mile trip on the turnpike would pay $1.70, starting in December, and $2.60 in 2012. The increase is 10 cents less than the authority's earlier proposal for each toll increase.

Parkway tolls would increase from 35 cents to 50 cents in December, and to 75 cents in 2012. Another 10-cent increase in 2023 was eliminated.

The plan continues the current 25 percent discount during off-peak hours for cars with E-ZPass and provides a new 10 percent discount during off-peak hours for E-ZPass drivers who are at least 65 years old and an extra 10 percent discount for drivers of fuel-efficient vehicles...
