Cash tolls on the George Washington Bridge, Goethals Bridge, Bayonne Bridge, the Holland and Lincoln tunnels and the Outerbridge Crossing will go from $12 to $13.  
E-ZPass users will see a seventy-five cent increase on the same Port Authority bridges and tunnels.  
Users will be charged $10.25 during peak commuting hours, and $8.25 during off-peak hours.  
The tolls were last raised by the Port Authority in September 2011, and will go up again on Dec. 1, 2013.  
Peak hours are from 6-10 a.m. and 4-8 p.m. on weekdays, and 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekends.
Revenue from the increases is being used to fund various projects, including enhanced security measures and the $11 billion World Trade Center complex.
