Beginning January 1, 2016, the reimbursement for trucks calling at Global Container Terminals-New York (GCT-NY) will increase to $11.14 per axle.
Undertaken in September 2013, the Toll Reimbursement Program fosters economic parity at the Port of New York and New Jersey. The reimbursements help to offset expenses not paid by trucks calling at other marine terminals where crossing a bridge and incurring subsequent tolls is unnecessary.
As of December 6, 2015, the cost for a truck using E-ZPass to cross a Port Authority bridge rose to $18/axle. Starting January 1, 2016, the GCT-NY Toll Reimbursement Program will refund $11.14 per axle to participating truckers on qualified crossings. This effectively lowers the trucker’s toll rate to $6.86 per axle.
In order to qualify for this program, a trucker must use E-ZPass and have a valid checking account associated with their E-ZPass account.
