Check with your rental car agency to see what their policy is for paying tolls. Some companies provide E-ZPass® transponder tags. If so, be sure you understand how to use the transponders and paying for any fees or charges. Fees vary among companies regarding unpaid tolls. Find out the specifics in advance.
If your rental car company does not provide a transponder, or you don't want to use a rental car company tag, there are two options:
- Pay the toll in cash
- Pay the toll with your own E-ZPass® transponder
If you have an E-ZPass® account, and decide to use your own transponder, DON'T add the rental car license plate number to your account.

Reservations for shared-ride van and private car services can be made at the Port Authority Welcome Center. It's located on the Arrivals level of each terminal. If the center's closed, there's a convenient self-service kiosk nearby. Contact authorized shared-ride or private car services there.
