Cuomo proposes toll break for Staten Island-to-Jersey trips

June 25, 2012 4:27:34 AM PDT
Driving from Staten Island to New Jersey could soon be less expensive for regular commuters who use E-ZPass.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has proposed a plan to give drivers toll discounts after two trips over the Goethals and Bayonne bridges and the Outerbridge Crossing.

The fee for E-ZPass users would go from $12 to $4.75, starting on a driver's third trip and for each subsequent trip over a 30-day period.

The Port Authority board is slated to vote on the issue on Thursday.
