The Lincoln Tunnel linking New Jersey and New York City Sep 04, 2010
The Lincoln Tunnel is one of two highway tunnel systems linking New Jersey with New York City. (The other is the Holland Tunnel.)

The Lincoln Tunnel consists of six traffic lanes in three tunnels under the Hudson River between Weehawken, New Jersey, and mid-town Manhattan. The tunnel tubes opened in 1937, 1945, and 1957. The longest tube is 8,216 ft. (2.5 km).

Private passenger cars, taxis, buses, and trucks all use the tunnel. The toll is $8.00 between New Jersey and Manhattan, but there is no charge for the return trip.

I've driven through the Lincoln Tunnel myself and ridden through it on buses. Buses exiting in New York will head directly for the nearby Port Authority Bus Terminal. Cars exit onto Dyer Avenue. (Follow Dyer up to 42nd Street to either turn left towards 12th Avenue and the Hudson River waterfront or right towards 8th Avenue and Times Square.)

Watch for the New Jersey-New York tiled state line sign in the middle of the tunnel!

The toll for the Lincoln Tunnel is eight dollars from New Jersey to New York City (Manhattan). There is no charge for New York to New Jersey. The same toll charge applies to the Holland Tunnel and the George Washington Bridge.
