It was just this past January that tolls went up by three percent. But guess what: they’re going up again next year. New Jersey’s Transportation Commissioner Diane Guttierrez-Scaccetti announced the news while being questioned by state lawmakers during a budget committee hearing.
The last increase was 3% and it jacked tolls on all three of the roads that the Turnpike Authority controls: The actual New Jersey Turnpike, the Garden State Parkway, and the Atlantic City Expressway.
In January of 2024, it’ll be another 3% on those roads. Great. Just great.
