Port Authority To Stop Taking Toll Tickets


 toll-boothsThe Port Authority will soon stop accepting toll tickets nearly 61 years after first issuing them to speed the ride.

Toll Scrip and Universal tickets will no longer be good at the agency’s bridges and tunnels beginning July 1. The Port Authority will refund tickets at their original sales value.

The Port Authority first issued the tickets in 1951 to improve traffic flow and reduce congestion. Buyers received a 10 percent discount and the tickets were “good until used.”

The agency stopped selling them after it started using E-ZPass in 1997.

Instructions for obtaining a refund are posted on the Port Authority’s website.
