Senior Citizen Discount Bridge Toll Program

2 min read

This program allows you to pay a reduced fare on bridge tolls run by the Delaware River Port Authority (also called DRPA). The discount can be used at any time on the following 4 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.

Please note: 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.


How do I apply?

You can apply for this program by getting a New Jersey E-ZPass account and submitting your Senior Discount Program Application (Form 135-1) to DRPA.

It takes at least 4 to 5 weeks to process the application. To verify that you are registered for the program, you can call the NJ E-ZPass customer service center at 1-888-288-6865.

You can also check your account online. Once you enter your E-ZPass account and pin numbers, click the “Plans” link and look for the code “DRPA Senior Citizen Plan” to see if you have been approved for the discount program.
