Drivers to pay more at Port Authority crossings beginning Sunday


| brennison@queenscourier.com

Toll hikes go into effect on Port Authority crossings beginning Sunday, a December tradition drivers will have to get used to.

E-ZPass users will be paying an additional 75 cents — $8.25 off peak and $10.25 on peak — while cash tolls will rise $1 to $13.

All increases will apply to the Lincoln & Holland tunnels, the George Washington, Bayonne and Goethals bridges, and the Outerbridge Crossing.

More toll increases are scheduled each December through 2015. The hikes were approved in August.  Increased revenue from the increases will go towards the cost of the World Trade Center rebuilding and the overhaul of the agencies facilities, according to the PA.
