FORT LEE, NJ — Motorists will pay more as the next phase of toll increases kick in at Port Authority bridges and tunnels on Sunday.

Cash tolls on the George Washington Bridge, Holland Tunnel, Lincoln Tunnel, Goethals Bridge, Bayonne Bridge and Outerbridge Crossing will increase $1 to $13.

Tolls for E-ZPass users will go from $9.50 to $10.25 during peak commuting hours and from $7.50 to $8.25 during off-peak hours.

The Port Authority last raised tolls in September 2011.

The bistate agency said it needed to offset security-related projects following the 9/11 attacks, a drop in revenue caused by the global economic slump, and the $11 billion World Trade Center complex.

Port Authority tolls will next go up on Dec. 1, 2013 unless a lawsuit against the increase is successful.
