If you missed a toll or used the wrong toll lane, you must make a payment within 48 hours to avoid the generation of a traffic summons for a toll violation.

If you miss a toll on a ramp, you can pay at a barrier, such as the Pleasantville toll plaza or the Egg Harbor toll plaza. Just notify the attendant you missed a toll, and it will be added to your barrier charges.

You may visit the SJTA administration offices at the Farley Service Plaza. The receptionist will be able to accept your toll payment.

You may also mail your payment to the following address:

  • SJTA
  • PO Box 351

HAVE AN E-ZPASS TOLL VIOLATION?

E-ZPass users have a page where you may pay the violation or dispute it; however, you must have the toll violation number and proper vehicle information associated with the toll violation.

If you have a new car with a temporary license plate, and you received a violation, call the toll violation center at 973-368-1425 or 888-288-6865.

For violations on the Atlantic City Expressway, you may also contact the South Jersey Transportation Authority to resolve your issue. The SJTA may be reached at 609-965-6060.

Counting Axles

new jersey toll classes

This graphic provides general information about how to count the number of axles on your vehicle. See the information below for detailed information for New Jersey.

Tolls and Vehicle Classes

Any driver that uses a toll road in New Jersey is expected to pay the toll for that roadway. In New Jersey, the tolls are set by the New Jersey Turnpike Authority.

About Vehicle Classes

The classification system is simple in New Jersey. Tolls are calculated based on the number of axles your vehicle has. Any trailers that are towed behind your vehicle will also have the axles counted, so when you count the axles on your vehicle, be certain to add the number of axles on the vehicle and the trailer to get your total.

Motorcycles count as a car, including motorcycles with a sidecar. Motorcycles with a trailer would count two axles for the motorcycle, plus the number of axles on the trailer, to get a total.

Axle Classes

  • 2-Axle class includes a car, van, SUV, motorcycle or pickup truck
  • 3-Axle class includes the axles on the vehicle plus any trailer
  • 4-Axle class includes the axles on the vehicle plus any trailer
  • 5-Axle class includes the axles on the vehicle plus any trailer
  • 6-Axle class includes the axles on the vehicle plus any trailer

In New Jersey, there is no class of vehicle higher that the 6-Axle class. If you have seven or more axles, use the 6-Axle Class.

Bus Classes

New Jersey has a separate class system for buses, but it is still based on the number of axles.

  • Class B2: 2-Axle Bus
  • Class B3: 3-Axle Bus

 

PAYING TOLLS IN NEW JERSEY

CASH PAYMENT SYSTEM

The cash payment system speaks for itself. When you pay by cash, you are responsible for having sufficient cash funds to pay for your tolls while driving on New Jersey toll roads.

If you are unable to pay your toll, you will receive a ticket for the amount of the unpaid toll, plus an administrative fine.

E-ZPASS ELECTRONIC PAYMENTS

New Jersey is part of the E-ZPass system; therefore, you may use an E-ZPass on toll roads in New Jersey. If you have an E-ZPass issued in another state, you will still get the discounted toll rates in New Jersey. However, to get off-peak E-ZPass rates, you must be using an E-ZPass issued by New Jersey.

Make certain you have sufficient funds on your E-ZPass account to pay for the toll charges you will incur; otherwise, it will count as a toll violation.

E-ZPASS OFF-PEAK DISCOUNT

The peak driving periods are from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. All day Saturday and Sunday are also considered peak periods. During this time, those using E-ZPass to pay tolls will be paying the peak rate. Holders of the New Jersey E-ZPass will automatically get the off-peak E-ZPass discount rate when it applies.
