Tolls set to rise on NJ-NY crossings

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- Get ready to pay more to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey when you drive from New Jersey into New York City.

The third of five annual toll hikes is scheduled to go into effect on Sunday at bridges and tunnels.

Cars with E-ZPass tags will pay 75 cents more when they cross the George Washington, Bayonne and Goethals bridges and Outerbridge Crossing, or go through the Lincoln and Holland tunnels.

That makes the E-ZPass peak toll $11 and the off-peak toll $9.

Cars paying cash will continue to pay $13.

The heaviest burden will be borne by trucks or towing combinations with six or more axles. Their off-peak E-ZPass rate will rise from $66 to $78 and the peak E-ZPass rate will rise $12 to $84.
