This program allows you to pay a reduced fare on bridge tolls run by the Delaware River Port Authority (DRPA). The discount can be used at anytime on the following four bridges:
- Benjamin Franklin
- Walt Whitman
- Betsy Ross
- Commodore Barry
The discount amount is half the full price of the toll. You must always be in the car when the discount is being applied. You can use the reduced fare on passenger vehicles only. Commercial vehicles cannot get the discount.
If you misuse the discount in any way, DRPA has the right to request the full cash value retroactively
for all transactions for which a discounted toll had been previously charged.
