To safeguard motorists and employees, the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission established a temporary COVID-19 cashless tolling process that was in effect from 10 p.m. March 24 to 11 p.m. May 13. During this temporary “toll-by-mail” period, tolls at the Commission’s seven cash/E-ZPass tolling points were assessed electronically via E-ZPass or through toll notices sent to registered vehicle owners via U.S. Mail.
This measure was instituted as a precaution against the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus. Cashless tolling eliminates contacts and exchanges of currency and change that could spread the virus among customers and Commission personnel.
Invoices for the temporary “toll-by-mail” period began being mailed May 5. A system backlog is expected to be eliminated on or about May 21.
