NJ tolls increase on the Turnpike and Parkway

TRENTON, New Jersey (WABC) -- New toll rates are now in effect for drivers who use the New Jersey Turnpike and the Garden State Parkway.

Tolls went up by 3% beginning March 1.

The toll hikes were included in the New Jersey Turnpike Authority's 2024 budget, which was later signed by Governor Phil Murphy.

The average increase is about 15 cents on the turnpike and 5 cents on the parkway.

Most parkway tolls will go from 75 cents in 2023 to 80 cents this year.

The price hike is a little less painful using E-Z Pass, but in these days of high interest rates and other tolls, fees and taxes on the rise, the increase on the state's major highways is just another jolt to driver's wallets.

Funds collected from the tolls will be used for capital projects.
