We provide, quite possibly, thousands of quotes per day. As a reply to the constant question "How much is the fare from point A to point B?" our reply is usually "Amount plus tolls" The passenger reply is either "Plus what?" or "How much are the tolls?"
There seems to be a lot of confusion about what tolls are and who exactly is charging them. The bottom line is; not us. Tolls are charged by the state (or sometimes private entities) on certain highways, freeways, expressways and interstates. This is how road, bridge and tunnel repairs, and state trooper salaries are funded. We cannot discount or waive the tolls as we have no control over how much the state wants to charge you to get to the airport, train, bus terminal or your house. So far, we would have to say that PA is our favorite state, in the Tri-State, when it comes to tolls as their tolls are usually just $1.00 and the roads are smooth. Makes you want to transplant them in Manhattan.
Tolls are charged round-trip by everyone. From the NYC yellow cabs, airport shuttles and even your tour bus. That means all tolls to your destination and any tolls to get back to base. The round-trip tolls to JFK and La Guardia Airport from New Jersey are $31 plus whatever tolls from the NJ Turnpike or Garden State Parkway.
