The Port Authority’s existing toll collection system is more than 18 years old and is in need of replacement. At its June 2014 meeting, the Board of Commissioners authorized a project to upgrade the agency’s toll collection system at its four bridges and two tunnels. The upgraded system is anticipated to be complete by the 2nd quarter of 2017.
Installation of a new toll collection system will be acquired through a competitive process, and will likely begin in the 4th quarter of 2018 and be completed by the end of 2020.
For customers who use an “E-ZPass Only” lane without a valid E-ZPass tag, or fail to pay the toll in a staffed toll lane, a Notice of Toll Violation will be mailed to the registered owner of the vehicle. For first-time instances of failure to pay the toll, vehicle owners are asked to pay only the toll due and the administrative fee is waived, provided payment is made within 15 days of receiving the Notice of Toll Violation. Subsequent violations are subject to an administrative fee of $50 plus the toll for each occurrence. Please note the signs above the toll lanes carefully.
“E-ZPass Only” lanes are marked with the purple “E-ZPass” logo on top and the word “ONLY.”
Keep driving, but obey the 5 MPH speed limit. All Port Authority toll lanes are equipped with E-ZPass readers. Your account will be billed just as if you had gone through an E-ZPass-only lane.
Call the Customer Service Center that maintains your account (and have your E-ZPass tag handy). The agency will check your account, credit your account if necessary, and send you a new E-ZPass tag. See the table below to see which agency maintains your account:

You will receive a periodic statement that will detail all tolls by E-ZPass tag, location and amount, as well as any payments you have made. You can also call 800 333-TOLL (8655), or check your account on the E-ZPass website at any time. As stated in the E-ZPass Terms and Conditions, customers are responsible for maintaining a sufficient E-ZPass account balance.
If your tag is lost or stolen, report it immediately to the appropriate Customer Service Center (see a list of phone numbers on question 3), or by accessing your account under account information. The tag will be deactivated. You will not be responsible for any charges incurred after you report a lost or stolen tag. You may be liable for toll charges incurred prior to notification. You will be responsible for paying the full cost of the tag -- $16 for an interior tag or $22 for an exterior tag. Upon request, a new tag will be issued to you.
Your E-ZPass account may be suspended or revoked if you are issued a speeding violation at a toll plaza. If your tag is suspended due to speeding, you cannot use it at any toll plazas. If you use your tag when your account is suspended, you will incur an administrative fee of $50 per occurrence, be charged the full undiscounted toll, and/or be asked to surrender the tag.
If you received email that appears to be part of the E-ZPass Phishing Scam, we encourage you to file a complaint with the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3). IC3 is a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the National White Collar Crime Center, and is dedicated to sharing information on Internet crimes across law enforcement agencies.
