Port Authority Tolls Reduce Traffic

By on Friday, April 11th, 2008 at 8:27 am

Last month’s bump in tolls saw a dramatic decline in traffic, according to the Times. The 2.9% drop in traffic was far greater than the expected 2.3% drop, and occurred faster. Thats more than 10,000 fewer vehicles crossing the river.

The toll hike increased the six dollar toll to eight, and eliminated the discount for EZ-Pass users. The statistics come days after New York’s failure to approve a congestion pricing plan, which coincidentally, would also have been an eight dollar fee.
