STOP Removal of Carpool discount across GWB, Lincoln, Holland

0 have signed. Let’s get to 25,000!

The Port Authority of NY/NJ has announced that they are removing the Car Pool discount for entering NY on the GW Bridge, Lincoln Tunnel, and Holland Tunnel.

Thousands of commuters take advantage of this benefit everyday and the removal of it will be detrimental for all parties.

New Jersey residents will have to pay thousands of dollars a year in new tolls and the addition of new cars will of course increase air pollution. That’s a lose-lose for absolutely everyone (maybe except the Port Authority revenue stream). 

Gov. Phil Murphy has said he is on the side of commuters and would talk to the Port Authority about keeping the discount, but he has yet to do so.

Please sign this petition to bring awareness to not just his Administration but all your local officials. Otherwise we don't stand a chance. 

The new rules are to go into effect January 5, 2020.
