Traveling to New York City is getting more expensive starting Sunday as tolls on bridges and tunnels connecting the city to New Jersey and other parts of the tristate are increasing.
There will be a $1 increase for cash tolls and a $1.25 increase for E-ZPass tolls at the George Washington Bridge and others.
The increases went into effect around 3 a.m. and also include tolls at the Lincoln Tunnel, Holland Tunnel, Goethals Bridge, Bayonne Bridge and the Outerbridge Crossing.
Cash tolls now cost $15 to $16, and E-ZPass tolls will now be $13.75 during peak hours and $11.75 during off peak hours.
Port Authority approved the toll increase on Sept. 26 to help pay for $4.8 billion worth of projects. The increase in tolls is also primarily tied to inflation.
There will be a 6% increase in the toll going over the Delaware River Bridge connecting New Jersey to Pennsylvania.
According to Port Authority, it does not receive tax revenue from either the state of New York or New Jersey, or from the city of New York.
Port Authority board members approved the inflation-based increase citing record-setting use of bridges and tunnels and redevelopment projects. The last time fees increased at Port Authority bridges and tunnels based on inflation was 2015.
