Last year, through November, 43.2 million passenger vehicles crossed the George Washington Bridge from New Jersey into Manhattan, according to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. Another 14.4 million crossed through the Lincoln Tunnel, and 13.1 million through the Holland Tunnel.
The cash toll at the three crossings is $15 one way. With an E-ZPass tag, it’s $10.50 off-peak and $12.50 during peak hours.
That itself is a form of congestion pricing, said Robert Puentes, president and CEO of the Eno Center for Transportation in Washington.
