BLOG: Get Ready For Toll Increases Next Week

By Jim Donovan: You better have some extra cash on hand when crossing some area bridges next week. As a reminder, beginning Friday, July 1, the tolls are increasing by a buck!

The one-way tolls will be $5 for cars on the Commodore Barry, Walt Whitman, Ben Franklin and Betsy Ross Bridges. Tolls for all other vehicles will also increase. The 50% Senior Citizen Discount will continue for those enrolled in the E-ZPass program. Seniors who still have discount tickets may use any combination of tickets and cash that totals the new $2.50 discounted car toll.

Also effective on July 1 will be a PATCO fare hike of 10%. The one way fare from the farthest distance in New Jersey to Philadelphia will go to $3.00, a 30 cent increase. The off peak fare for seniors (age 65+), Medicare card holders and the disabled who are eligible for and enrolled in the Reduced Fare Program will increase 8 cents to 70 cents.

Information on the fare schedules can be found on PATCO’s website,
