MTA raises tolls on bridges and tunnels, makes cuts to service for disabled

MTA Raises Tolls on Bridges and Tunnels
/ October 27, 2010
Drivers as well as bus and subway riders will all be paying more for their commutes beginning on Dec. 30.
By Jill Colvin

MIDTOWN — Straphangers aren’t the only ones who will have to shell out more cash to commute in the new year.

The Metropolitan Transit Authority voted Wednesday to increase tolls on bridges and tunnels, following last month’s unpopular hike in subway and bus fares, which drew outrage across the city…

While expected, the hike was nonetheless met with protest by drivers and some local leaders.

“If anyone out here really thinks the rent is too damn high, the tolls and fares are too damn high for people to afford!,” Bronx City Councilman James Vacca said, echoing the chant of the Rent is 2 Dam High party gubernatorial candidate Jimmy McMillan…

Before the meeting began, dozens of union members gathered outside of the MTA headquarters for a frenzied protest against other cuts, including to the Access-a-Ride service for disabled and elderly New Yorkers.

Upper Manhattan City Councilman Ydanis Rodriguez also testified against the hike, telling the board that “this is not the best time, especially for the working class, middle class new Yorkers.”
