LISTEN: WCBS 880’s Monica Miller reports

Commuters will have nine chances to express their opinions about a proposal to pay more at the Hudson River crossings.

On August 16th, four of the meetings will begin at 8 a.m. and three will start at 6 p.m. There’s also an online forum offered at 2 p.m.

The Port Authority’s website says they’ll take place in Northern New Jersey, Manhattan and Queens. Those interested in speaking should register online and will have up to three minutes to do so.

If the proposal is approved on August 19, toll hikes in some cases could rise by as much as 50 percent over three years.
