Port Authority To Hold Public Hearings On Proposed Toll, Fare Hikes

NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — Got something to say to Port Authority officials about proposed fare hikes? You’ll get your chance on Tuesday when the bi-state agency holds public hearings.

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.

    Port Authority officials and family don’t care what the price is. It’s not like they actually pay the tolls. I know that even retired officials still have their free ezpass

    THE OLIVE OIL KID FROM NY AND THE FAT P O S FROM NJ WILL RIDE TO THE RESCUE WITH ONLY A $2 HIKE AND EVERYBODY WILL GO OOH & AAH AND SAY WHAT A GREAT JOB THESE PHONY M FERS ARE DOING

  3. Ted says:

    What is the point. They are going to raise the fares anyway. What I want to know is why an office tower at WTC is being funded off the back of commuters. Port Authority needs to have a clean flush of all senior management. Then there needs to be a top to bottom review of all activities and streamlining of the organization.

    “Port Authority To Hold Public Hearings….”

    That’s right – it’s only a HEARING, not a LISTENING. The decision has already been made.
