MTA Votes To Increase Tolls By 7 Percent

Tolls at MTA bridges and tunnels will soon be going up.

The MTA board on Thursday approved a toll hike of about 7 percent on its crossings. That includes bridges like the Verrazano, Triboro, Throgs Neck and tunnels like the Brooklyn-Battery and Queens-Midtown.

The increased tolls will take effect in April.

The MTA originally planned to raise fares on the subways and buses as well.However, those hikes were put off because of the pandemic.
