The revised plan will raise tolls Parkway tolls from 35 to 50 cents in December, with another 25 cent increase planned for 2012. The average 23-mile trip on the Turnpike will increase in cost from $1.20 to $1.70 in December, and rise to $2.60 in 2012.
The latest plan scraps a third round of increases, which would have taken effect in 2023, that had been included in the previous proposal. It also includes discounts. Drivers using E-ZPass during off-peak hours will keep the current 25 percent discount they now receive. E-ZPass drivers who are over 65 will get a new 10 percent discount during off-peak hours. Truckers will get a new 5 percent discount for using E-ZPass during off-peak hours, and drivers of fuel-efficient vehicles will get an extra 10 percent discount.
