The following tables of adjusted rates are proposed to be charged at the Commission’s eight toll bridges:  Trenton-Morrisville (Route 1), Scudder Falls (I-295), New Hope-Lambertville (Route 202), I-78, Easton-Phillipsburg (Route 22), Portland-Columbia, Delaware Water Gap (I-80), and Milford-Montague (Route 206).   If approved, the proposed rates for 2021 would take effect on or after April 3, 2021; the proposed rates for 2024 would take effect on or after January 6, 2024.  Other changes are described in the respective vehicle description columns in bold.

2021 Toll Rates

CLASS 1
Includes vehicles with up to 2 axles and less than 8-feet high.  *The frequency-based E-ZPass commuter discount would be 20 percent, reducing the $1.25 to $1.  The discount is applied as a retroactive credit after 16 or more tolled trips across DRJTBC bridges are recorded in a respective calendar month on a transponder issued by the Commission’s toll processor — the New Jersey E-ZPass Customer Service Center.  A passenger vehicle with a trailer or vehicle in tow would be charged an additional $2 regardless of the number of rolling axles.

The two proposed toll schedules above are posted for purposes of gathering public comment before the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission’s directors decide whether to approve, modify/approve, or reject the proposed rates.  If approved, they would be the first system-wide toll adjustment at the Commission in 10 years.  The top schedule of toll adjustments would take effect on or after April 3, 2021.  The second schedule would take effect on or after January 6, 2024.

Please go to www.drjtbc.org/tollcomments for more information on the toll adjustment and the public comment process.  The public comment period opens February 1 and ends 4 p.m. February 26.  Three virtual hearings will be held as part of this comment process due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Under the proposed toll changes, uniform rates would be charged at the Commission’s eight toll bridges beginning on or after April 3, 2021.  Motorists with E-ZPass transponders would qualify for lower rates.  Drivers without E-ZPass would pay higher rates.  All E-ZPass users — regardless of issuing agency — will qualify for the E-ZPass rates. The Commission’s volume-based E-ZPass commuter discount, however, can only be applied to passenger vehicle transponders issued by the Commission’s toll processor — the regional New Jersey E-ZPass Customer Service Center.  The commuter discount is proposed to be 20 percent for eligible motorists who record 16 or more tolled trips acorss DRJTBC bridges in a respective calendar month, starting on or after April 3, 2021.  The discount is proposed to continue through 2023.

The per-axle rates for trucks, buses, and other vehicles 8 feet or more in height would be $4.50 per axle for E-ZPass and $5 per axle for cash/TOLL BY PLATE on or after April 3, 2021.  (Note: The Scudder Falls Toll Bridge currently is the only DRJTBC crossing with all-electronic tolling (AET) and TOLL BY PLATE service.)  The off-peak E-ZPass discount for trucks, buses and commercial vehicles 8-feet and above in height would expire on or after April 3, 2021.

The proposed 2024 toll adjustment schedule (effective on or after January 6, 2024) would set the E-ZPass Class 1 vehicle rate at $1.50.  The Commission’s frequency-based commuter discount also would end at this time.

Only E-ZPass accounts issued by the DRJTBC’s toll processing service provider (NJ E-ZPass Group) are eligible for the Commission’s commuter discount program. (E-ZPass users who have accounts administered by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, and the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission are ineligible for the commuter discount because their toll systems are separate from the DRJTBC’s toll-processing service provider.)
