Tolls for cars using E-ZPass during off-peak hours also increased 75 cents, to $9.75. The cash toll totaled $14, a $1 increase.

These new fares apply to drivers crossing the Lincoln and Holland tunnels, the George Washington, Bayonne & Goethals bridges, and the Outerbridge Crossing, according to the Port Authority.
