The New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority voted last week to raise tolls for trucks and cars on its six bridges and two tunnels, effective March 1.
MTA tunnels and bridges are all within New York City, while the tunnels and bridges connecting to New Jersey are operated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
Cash tolls for a 5-axle truck crossing the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge will rise to $80, from the current $70, while the E-ZPass rate will rise to about $52 from about $47. That bridge is the only one with one-way tolling.
The same truck using the Robert F. Kennedy, Bronx-Whitestone or Throgs Neck bridges will see the cash tolls rise $5 to $40, with E-ZPass up about $2.50 to about $26.07 each way. The rates will be the same for the Hugh L. Carey and Queens Midtown tunnels.
The cash toll on the Marine Parkway-Gil Hodges Memorial and Cross Bay Veterans Memorial bridges will rise $2.50 to $20, and the E-ZPass rate will rise $1 to about $13 each way.
