Tolls Rise at NY’s Bridges, Tunnels

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -

If you’re driving in or out of New York City starting Sunday, make sure to take a little extra cash.

Tolls on the bridges and tunnels operated by the Port Authority rose, with drivers shelling out $14 in cash lanes, up from $13, and E-ZPass tag holders will pay an extra 75 cents. It’s the fourth of five phased-in toll increases that began in 2011.

The American Automobile Associations had sued to block the toll increase, saying it violated federal law because the money was used partly to cover redevelopment of the World Trade Center. But a federal judge last month refused to stop the increase.
