The Port Authority toll increase impacting all crossings managed by the agency was implemented on Sunday.
This is the first toll increase in two years. 
The crossings that are impacted include the Holland Tunnel, the George Washington Bridge, and the Lincoln Tunnel into Manhattan.
In addition, the Outerbridge Crossing and the Goethals and Bayonne bridges going into Staten Island also increased.
The fare for both peak and off-peak E-ZPass tolls rose $1.
With E-ZPass, peak hours toll increased from $13.75 to $14.75, and the E-ZPass non-peak hours toll increased from $11.75 to $12.75.
For those traveling without E-ZPass, the cash-by-mail toll increased by $1, now at $17.
There are discounts available for those who cross into Staten Island on a regular basis. 
The increases were determined in 2008 and are automatically triggered based on inflation. 
Single-ride fares on the Newark AirTrain and JFK AirTrain increased from $8 to $8.25.
PATH fares have remained unchanged.
