In March, the NJ Turnpike Authority announced it would seek to end off-peak toll discounts on the NJ Turnpike for drivers whose E-ZPass accounts are outside the state’s E-ZPass system. The policy would mean higher rush-hour traffic for everyone on the road; according to an agency spokesperson, more than half of Turnpike drivers who use E-ZPass would be affected by the change, including those with accounts through the Port Authority of NY & NJ.
The Authority issued a reminder notice of public hearings on the change today. The three hearings are:
Today, 4:30-7:30 pm, at the Meadowlands Race Track (Hambletonian Room), East Rutherford, NJ.
May 5, 4:30-7:30 pm, NJ Turnpike Authority HQ, 581 Main Street, Woodbridge, NJ.
May 9, 4:30-7:30 pm, Camden County Community College’s Blackwood Campus, 200 College Drive, Blackwood, NJ.
Comments can also be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org and regular mail to Office of the Executive Director, New Jersey Turnpike Authority, PO Box 5042, Woodbridge, NJ 07095.
