It depends on the route that you take, but this should be close (keep in mind this is New York - Washington, the reverse route will not cost the same). All prices are Cash (non-EZpass) for a car.

NJ Turnpike from 16E (Lincoln tunnel) to the Delaware Memorial Bridge: $5.85

Delaware Memorial Bridge: $3.00

Delaware Highway toll: $2.00

Baltimore Tunnel (either): $1.00

Try these web sites if you want a more accurate cost based on the route you specifically intend to take:

Can someone explain this: For a huge coach to go through the Lincoln Tunnel, it was only $3 but the posted price for cars and trucks was $6 and $6+.

Don't forget either the Lincoln, Holland or GWB in that...

Cars cost more to go through the Lincoln tunnel I believe in an effort to get people to take the bus, and the bus tolls are cheaper since almost every bus goes through the Lincoln Tunnel to the PA.

Lionel,
Are you planning to drive from one of the airports to Washinton? If so, keep in mind that it will most likely be more than twice as expensive from JFK (or La Guardia) than from Newark.

Alternatively, even though it is more expensive, you might want to consider taking the train (http://amtrak.com).

No, I am not arriving at an NYC-airport. I will be driving around the eastcoast and I was just wondering, if the highways are as expensive as for example in France.

Yep... the idea is by putting tolls on only one direction, and making them twice as expensive. The average person will pay the same, as most people make round trips.

By doing this, you can take advantage of the geography to better control traffic (anyone that commutes in the area can stop laughing now). For example, all bridge / tunnel tolls in the area crossing the Hudson (Holland & Lincoln tunnels, George Washington & Tappan Zee bridges) are on the eastbound side. This keeps toll-related traffic from backing up into the city in the evening, thus reducing already extensive traffic problems in the city. In the morning, the tolls reduce the rate traffic spills into the city, again reducing the congestion in the city.

Of course all of this is theory, and probably worked when the system was initially set up, but ask anyone who commutes in now and you'll hear of hour-long backups in the morning on the approaches to the bridges / tunnels, and the same on the city streets leading to the tunnels in the evening. Unfortunately, the reality is tolls as a traffic management device don't work.

The Port Authority bridges and tunnels from New Jersey to NYC costs $6, you only pay when going from NJ to NYC, there are no tolls from NYC to NJ.

If they did it the other way they would have traffic jams on each side to collect the $3, instead there's only toll booths on one side that collects $6.

The MTA bridges (Verrazano Narrows) are the same, but more expensive. It costs $7 to go from Staten Island to Brooklyn, but there's no toll from Brooklyn to Staten Island (opposite direction, same bridge).

I couldn't get through the Holland Tunnel when I tried, there were signs that said 8 feet wide was the limit, and I was 8 and a half plus the mirrors. What I was really pissed off about was getting routed (by the posted signs) way the F--K around on the New Jersey Turnpike instead of just up the road to the Lincoln. I hate New Jersey because of this. Those c--ksuckers.

Isn't it true if one of those tiles that line the tunnel breaks loose, millions of gallons of water will flood in and drown every driver in there like thousands of rats.......

Unlikely, the PATH tubes which are older and alot more brittle survived the collapse of the WTC. Although it did flood, just not from the Hudson river but all the broken watermains and fire hoses.

I paid a toll on the Verrazano from Brooklyn to Staten Island three weeks ago ($7). It's definitely a two-way toll. The Goethals bridge, on the other hand, is a one way toll only from Elizabeth to Staten Island.

You only pay going in one direction on the Verrazano (Brooklyn-Staten Island), you do not pay going from Staten Island to Brooklyn.

You pay $7 to go from Brooklyn-Staten Island, it's free the other way.
