The Details

Holland Tunnel Toll

When you want to get from Lower Manhattan in New York to Jersey City in New Jersey, the best and the most convenient way is to use the Holland Tunnel. This toll facility is owned and maintained by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. The tunnel is part of Interstate 78.

Holland Tunnel – description

The Holland Tunnel is a vehicular tunnel in the Hudson River. It is 1.5 miles long which once made it the longest tunnel of its kind in the world. The Holland Tunnel connects Hudson Square and Lower Manhattan in New York City to Jersey City. It is one of the three vehicular crossings between New Jersey and Manhattan (the remaining ones are the George Washington Bridge and the Lincoln Tunnel). The construction of the tunnel started in 1920. The facility was opened seven years later. Today, the Holland Tunnel is one of the most expensive US tolls. Tolls are charged when driving eastbound into Manhattan. When you drive westbound into New Jersey, you will not be charged. Starting from February 2023, the tunnel has been closed from 11 pm to 5:30 am Sunday through Friday. This is due to repairs and maintenance work that is planned to be completed by the end of 2025.

How much are Holland Tunnel tolls?

The amount you pay for traveling in the Holland Tunnel depends on the type of vehicle, time of travel, and payment method. The easiest way is to pay the toll with a transponder tag or toll-by-mail. In the table below, you will find complete information about Holland Tunnel toll rates.

How to pay Holland Tunnel tolls?

You can pay Holland Tunnel tolls in the following ways:

  • Toll transponder tag. The most popular option is an E-ZPass (local transponder accounts: E-ZPass NY and E-ZPass NJ). Drivers with local transponder tags are entitled to discounted rates.

  • Ecotoll pay-as-you-go account. Ecotoll is a convenient way to pay tolls directly on your smartphone. There are no extra fees (subscription, device, etc.) and no minimum balance is required.

  • Toll by mail. If you don’t have a transponder tag, you can use an alternative method – toll by mail. Still, you don’t have to stop at toll booths – the cameras take a picture of your license plate information, and the system matches it with the vehicle’s registration information. The vehicle’s owner receives a bill in the mail. Once you get the invoice, you need to pay it within 15 days. You can pay online by credit card.

Note that the Holland Tunnel is cashless. It’s an all-electronic toll facility.

Love the app, use it every week
Saved our day when we were on a trip and had to take a toll road on our way home
This App allows us worry-free travel on TOLL ROADS...Automatically replenishing our account, notifying us of Automatically paying our access to the Toll Road. Great relief from expensive citations for not paying while driving. Thank you. P.S. A receipt is always sent to us.
I find this app a good way to track my tolls and manage my budget. Works great for this.
The app saves me a ton extra minutes every day. Took the worry out of paying our tolls. Thank you🌴
Better than a toll tag, I use one app on both vehicles and will link my wife's car next week. Easy to travel to other states, since you're registered with all toll authorities they cover.
Been going back to the office a little so been driving more. This is great.
Great app, awesome way to pay for tolls... thank you!
This app is so easy to use, and I can travel without having to worry about missing tolls.
