MTA Board approves toll increase for bridges, tunnels starting in April

News 12 has learned that Long Island drivers heading to the city will soon pay more to cross bridges and tunnels because the MTA board approved a toll hike.
Starting in April, tolls will increase by 7% on major crossings, including the Queens Midtown Tunnel and Throgs Neck Bridge.
This means for E-ZPass users, tolls will climb 43 cents, to $6.55.
There's also a new surcharge for drivers who fail to properly mount or display their E-ZPass tags.
