    Regular commuters on four Philadelphia-area bridges will get a price break starting next month.

    The Philadelphia Inquirer reports the Delaware River Port Authority will begin to rollout a program that returns $18 each month into E-ZPass accounts of drivers who cross the bridge at least 18 times in a month.

    The discount applies to drivers who have E-ZPass accounts through New Jersey. Only Pennsylvania-bound vehicles pay the $5 toll.

    Up to 29,000 people are eligible to participate. The DRPA predicts it will lose $6.4 million annually because of it. But officials say they have enough money to ensure no toll increases through 2020.

    The program will begin Dec. 8. E-ZPass customers who sign up through Dec. 28 will have their trips over the bridge retroactively apply to the discount.
