Did you know the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission's 40-percent E-ZPass commuter discount program extends to the new Scudder Falls (I-295) Toll Bridge? Did you know that the frequency-based discount can effectively reduce the bridge's base Class 1 vehicle E-ZPass toll from $1.25 to 75 cents?
To be eligible, a motorist needs an E-ZPass transponder/account issued/administered by the Commission's toll processor -- the regional New Jersey E-ZPass Customer Service Center.
The discount can then be applied as a retroactive credit on a future E-ZPass statement after 16 or more tolled trips are made across the bridge or any other Commission toll bridge during a respective calendar month.
The discount is tag specific, meaning the customer's transponder must be in the vehicle and in working order when a toll transaction is recorded. Class 1 passenger vehicles only -- cars, pickup trucks, SUVs, motorcycles, and other vehicles that have two axles and are less than eight-feet high.
To apply online for an E-ZPass account with the Commission's toll processor, please go to www.ezpassnj.com. Or dial 1-888-AUTO-TOLL (1-888-288-6865) during business hours Monday through Friday.
