We've always hesitated to go into the city because of the $8 tolls. A friend tipped us off, though, that you can register your car (if you have EZPass) for the carpool plan. 

To register, call 1-800-333-8655 (New York Service Center) or 1-888-288-6865 (New Jersey Service Center). Be sure to have your account number or tag number and PIN for account access.

Two conditions:

  • Three people or more must be in the car (infants/kids count as a person). Many times I took my two kids to pick up hubby from work to qualify! Even tempted to use a dummy 🙂
  • You have to go through the regular lane and tell the attendant "carpool." You cannot go through the EZpass lanes

The REWARD? It's only $2 to cross NY Bridges and Tunnels. 

Suddenly, there are a lot more ppl who qualify as the B&T crowd!
