Issue

This bill prohibits the New Jersey Turnpike Authority (NJTA) from authorizing automatic toll increases or adjustments. The bill reduces all NJTA toll rates by fifty cents from the toll rate applicable on September 14, 2020 and prohibits the NJTA from increasing any existing toll or from establishing any new toll until after December 31, 2024.

In May of 2020, the NJTA approved a resolution to, in part,
48 approve the NJTA’s Long-Range Capital Plan and to increase tolls on the New Jersey Turnpike and Garden State Parkway. The toll increases became effective on September 13, 2020. The resolution also allowed the NJTA to increase tolls up to a maximum of three percent per year starting on January 1, 2022.

This bill prohibits these annual toll increases from taking effect and reduces, by fifty cents, the toll increase that took effect on September 13, 2020.
