DRPA clarifies ban on free tolls for workers

CAMDEN, N.J. - September 9, 2010

The DRPA, which runs four bridges connecting Pennsylvania and New Jersey, has been criticized for months since it was revealed that employees were getting 100 free bridge crossings or rides on PATCO trains annually.

The agency later ended that practice.

The Philadelphia Inquirer first reported this week on a memo from a DRPA official telling workers how they could still cross the bridge for free. But the memo said it was only for employees in the line of duty or heading to work.

Agency CEO John Matheussen told The Courier-Post of Cherry Hill in Thursday's editions that free passage will be only for work-related travel.
