Hey I drive to Weehawken about 3 Times a week when going back into Manhattan how come the ezpass lane does not show if it read my pass or not but at the new Rochelle toll it does show
That screen very often doesn't show. Especially at the Lincoln Tunnel I've noticed. Not sure if it's a maintenance issue or an equipment issue.

Ok it freaked me out until I got to the other toll and saw it picked it up. I need to fully switch over to my mta ezpass. Iím trying to figure out how i can avoid that toll on the parkway on 9A I forgot how I did it the first time.. I donít want to take the GW bridge because it sets me way back unless I can take the GW and somehow get to 9A bypassing that toll since Iím getting hit with $6 because itís not a NY pass

If you're on 9A take the Mosholu to 87 and cross over one of the Harlem River free bridges.

Ah man but if I have it right I would still have to head way north in Jersey? Itís so easy getting out of the tunnel and Weehawken would be the first exit.

Didn't know that's where you were going. Yeah, the downside of the free route is that you must cross Manhattan on surface streets, so it does eat up a bunch of your time. (You could in theory take 87 to 95 to 9A, but that only helps you when the Highbridge interchange isn't backed up, which is typically something like 5:15-5:23 AM on the third Sunday of months with R in them.

I've gone through Highbridge at 3 AM on a Wednesday and it was clear. But yes, it's only clear in the middle of the night, and then you have to hope they're not doing construction.
