The Commission on March 29 approved the following tables of adjusted rates 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).   The 2021 rates and discount changes currently are scheduled to effect 12:00:01 a.m. April 11, 2021; the 2024 rate and discount changes are scheduled to take effect in January 2024.  Other changes are described in the respective vehicle description columns.

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 toll schedules above were first posted Feb. 1, 2021 for purposes of gathering public comment before the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission’s directors decided whether to approve, modify/approve, or reject the proposed rates.  The Commissioners subsequently reviewed gathered public comments and approved the toll schedules at their March 29 meeting.  The rate changes constitute the Commission’s first system-wide toll adjustment in 10 years.  The top schedule of toll rates is currently scheduled to take effect 12:00:01 a.m. April 4, 2021 — with the exception of the new reduced 20-percent frequent E-ZPass commuter discount, which is scheduled to start May 1.  The second toll schedule is expected to take effect in January 2024.

Please go to www.drjtbc.org/tollcomments for more information on the new toll rates and the public comment process that was used prior to adoption of the new toll rates.

Under the new toll rate schedules, uniform two-tiered rates (higher for Cash/TOLL BY PLATE transactions and lower for E-ZPass transactions) will charged at the Commission’s eight toll bridges starting April 11.  Motorists with E-ZPass transponders qualify for lower rates.  Drivers without E-ZPass would pay higher rates.  (Note:  E-ZPass is used in 75 percent of passenger vehicle toll transactions and 90 percent of commercial vehicle toll transactions in the Commission’s bridge system.)

All E-ZPass users — regardless of issuing agency — 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 will be reduced to 20 percent for eligible motorists who record 16 or more tolled trips across DRJTBC bridges in a respective calendar month, starting May 1, 2021.  This reduced discount will continue through 2023.

The per-axle rates for trucks, buses, and other vehicles 8 feet or more in height will be $4.50 per axle for E-ZPass and $5 per axle for cash/TOLL BY PLATE, starting April 11.  (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 will expire starting April 11.

The approved 2024 toll rate schedule (effective January 2024) increases the E-ZPass Class 1 vehicle rate to $1.50.  The Commission’s frequency-based commuter discount also will 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.)
