Chairman of the Nassau County Bridge Authority Issues Response to Decal Concerns

Are decals going away?

Decals will be replaced by unlimited E-Z Pass availability which will provide the same function as the decal. Decals will be phased out in 2023. Our website www.ncbaabb.com will have instructions on how to purchase unlimited E-Z Pass trips accross the Atlantic Beach Bridge for $199 annually for Nassau County residents and $349 annually for non-resident passenger vehicles.

For the typical frequent travelers, this equates to 14 cent increase per trip. See below.

2 trips per day, 5 days per week for 50 weeks equals 500 trips annually at $199 is 40 cents per trip. This amounts to 14 cents more per trip than the prior toll fee.

Modernizing our technology by moving to E-Z Pass will provide faster and safer bridge crossing and eliminate the need to display a decal on your vehicle. You will renew your unlimited E-Z Pass annual purchase at EZPassNY.com once the system is available. 2023 decals will be valid for the entire year.

We will provide continuous updates throughout the year on our website at www.ncbaabb.com.

Please stay tuned.

Thank you!
