Paying for tolls when using a rental car

Check with your rental car agency to learn about their company policy for paying tolls. Some rental car companies provide E-ZPass® transponder tags. In those cases, be sure you understand how to use the transponders and learn about any fees or charges. Fees vary among rental car companies regarding unpaid tolls, so it is important to find out the specifics in advance.

If your rental car company does not provide a transponder, or if you do not want to use a rental car company tag, you have two options:

If you have an E-ZPass® account, and decide to use your own transponder, we do NOT recommend adding the rental car license plate number to your account.

Taxi, Car and Van Service

SAFETY TIP: Ignore offers of transportation from solicitors in the terminal. Soliciting of ground transportation is illegal and many illegal solicitors are unlicensed and uninsured. To obtain ground transportation information, please visit the Port Authority Welcome Center located in the arrivals area of each terminal, where uniformed staff will be happy to assist you. Alternately, you may head directly for the taxi stand located outside each terminal for safe and legitimate transportation. Ignore non-uniformed people offering to assist with baggage. Seek out uniformed porters or airline employees for baggage assistance.

Ground transportation information counters, located on the lower baggage claim level of all terminals, provide information and reservations for buses, shared-ride vans and private cars or limousines.

As always, disregard offers of transportation from solicitors in the terminal. Be sure your transportation is safe and legitimate at ground transportation information counters, bus stops and taxi dispatchers. Also, please ignore non-uniformed persons offering to assist with baggage and seek out uniformed porters or airline employees for baggage assistance.
