As we welcome 2023, it's going to cost more to drive on all three toll roads in the Garden State.

Just last month, the New Jersey Turnpike Authority board unanimously approved a 3-percent increase in tolls on the Parkway and Turnpike.

Following suit, the South Jersey Transportation Authority's new budget, which was approved Wednesday, calls for a similar hike.

As reported by, the mainline toll plaza in Mays Landing, formerly known as "the dollar toll" for when it cost a buck back in the day, will increase from $4.40 to $4.55.

Further east, the Pleasantville Toll Plaza will cost a nickel more at $1.35 per passage.

Tolls at the on and off-ramps will also be increasing and drivers with EZ-Pass will continue to save a few pennies.
