Effective Sunday, motorists were paying more to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey for the use of bridges and tunnels from New Jersey into New York City.
More toll hikes will take effect this weekend at bridges and tunnels in the New York Metro area.
Sunday’s toll hikes are the second of five annual increases approved last year in a process that critics said was rushed and lacked transparency.
Amtrak has announced plans to reopen three tunnels providing access to and from Penn Station on Friday, nearly two weeks after they were flooded and severely damaged by Superstorm Sandy.
New York Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli says Wednesday overtime “flows like water” at the agency responsible for the region’s airports, seaports, PATH rail system, tunnels and bridges between New York and New Jersey.
Kagge, local guide Steve Duncan and photographer Andrew Wonder traveled from the Bronx, through Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens using the miles of tunnels under the City.
The commute just got more expensive for most drivers. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority on Wednesday approved yet another toll hike. Some drivers will soon be paying as much as $13.
