New toll rates went into effect Jan. 7, 2024.

All rates shown in the table apply to the Lincoln and Holland tunnels, the George Washington, Bayonne and Goethals bridges, and the Outerbridge Crossing. Tolls are collected entering New York. No tolls are collected entering New Jersey. All Port Authority crossings are cashless and no longer accept cash toll payments.

Tolls by Mail

  • Toll bills for passenger vehicles are issued to the registered vehicle owner once a month and include all toll transactions during the billing period.
  • Customers must pay the toll bill on or before the due date.
  • If a toll bill is not paid on time, it will be subject to a $5 late fee on the second toll bill. If the tolls owed remain unpaid after two toll bills are mailed, they will be subject to a violation fee of $50 for each unpaid toll. Please pay toll bills on time to avoid these fees.
  • Persistent unpaid violations may result in civil penalties and/or vehicle registration suspension.
