Bridge, tunnel tolls go up Sunday

July 12, 2009 1:38:10 PM PDT
Drivers are paying more to use many New York City bridges and tunnels. Tolls went up by 10 percent at 3 a.m. Sunday on the nine crossings controlled by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

They include the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge - formerly the Triborough Bridge - the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge and the Queens Midtown and Brooklyn-Battery tunnels.

The toll amounts vary by crossing, type of vehicle and whether a driver has an E-ZPass or other discount. Cash rates will be as high as $11 for passenger cars on the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. That toll, previously $10, is imposed in only one direction.
