A trip in a rental car from Newark to the Pentagon logged these tolls:

Transaction Date        Location                                    Amount  Agency Posting Date
10/21/2018 9:34:16 AM   Plaza-1-Delaware Memorial Bridge-Lane 15X   -$12.55 NJTP    10/21/2018 11:50:34 AM
10/21/2018 11:02:07 AM  Plaza-FMT-Fort McHenry Tunnel-Lane 015      -$4.00   MdTA   10/21/2018 5:20:23 PM
10/21/2018 9:51:15 AM   Plaza-D95-Newark Plaza-Lane 41              -$4.00   DelDOT 10/23/2018 2:22:15 AM
10/21/2018 9:39:41 AM   Plaza-DMB-Delaware Memorial Br-Lane 04      -$4.00   DRBA   10/23/2018 5:50:51 AM

I am concerned that a toll station may have missed MY (not the rental car company's) transponder. Is there a list of toll stations that I can check against to determine if there was missed transponder reading?

UPDATE

I actually started from Manhattan \ Lincoln tunnel. I do not think there are any tolls from there to Newark, NJ, so I titled the post from Newark, NJ.

I've been burned by this problem in the past, where a toll station did not pickup my transponder, but it did record the plate. The rental car company tagged me for the toll and additional fee (which was more than triple the toll).

    I haven't done that drive in a few years but it seems right to me.

  • Note that the "Newark Plaza" collected by DelDOT is Newark, Delaware, not New Jersey. Oct 28, 2018 at 12:06
  • Why would you care? It's the rental company's responsibility at the end of the day.

    @jonathanreez no it's the renters responsibility. Part of the agreement is that you become responsible for all tolls fines and penalties.

    @JonathanReez NO, it is not. The tolling authority will send a bill (and fine) to the rental company. The rental company will know the OP was driving their car, and send a bill for the toll, fine, and their own penalty, and the OP agreed to such terms when he rented the car. Its pretty clear you're not familiar with the NE US and the I-95 corridor, or renting a car in the US; please stop saying this won't end up back on the OP when you are uninformed.

It's correct. The only toll station missing is the I-95 bridge over the Susquehanna (the Millard Tydings Bridge), but that toll is only collected northbound, so you're OK.

Although your list isn't sorted by time, the toll stations you passed were:

  • NJ Turnpike (Newark NJ - Del Mem Br): $12.55
  • Delaware Memorial Bridge (NJ/DE state line): $4.00
  • Delaware Turnpike, Newark DE: $4.00
  • no toll at Tydings Bridge
  • Ft. McHenry Tunnel, Baltimore: $4.00

This is assuming you didn't take any of the express toll lanes northeast of Baltimore. The mainline lanes are not tolled.

  • Thank you for the details in the response. Is there a reference (link) to support the list? I appreciate the good news.

  • I've added more links. MdTA is responsible for I-95 from the DE state line up to and including the Baltimore Harbor tunnels and bridge. DelDOT handles the DE Turnpike (I-95 in DE), and the DRBA is in charge of the bridge between NJ and DE. Oct 28, 2018 at 17:45
  • Not authoritative, but potentially useful: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interstate_95_in_Maryland#Exit_list also see similar pages for DE & NJ. Oct 28, 2018 at 17:58
  • Links are appreciated and credit is awarded.

  • The other potential toll facility, depending on route, would be the Express Lanes on the Virginia side of the Capital Beltway, but it's perfectly possible to drive to the Pentagon and not encounter them.
