Yesterday we looked at a new proposal from MoveNY to toll four East River bridges (Manhattan, Brooklyn, Williamsburg, and Queensboro) and 60th Street in Manhattan in order to “raise funds for the MTA’s five-year capital plan (which is about $15.2 billion short of its target), and to make the cost of the city’s transit more equitable.” Drivers with E-ZPass would pay $5.54 to cross the bridges each way and at all 60th Street avenue crossings, while those without the technology would pay $8, all with the goal of improving mass transit.
