Staten Island, NY - Toll â€˜Breakâ€™ Approved For Bridge Tolls
Staten Island, NY - Staten Island drivers are finally getting some significant toll relief.
The Port Authority yesterday approved a plan to give E-ZPass users on its Staten Island bridges a steeply discounted toll price that kicks in after drivers make three crossings in 30 days.
Under the plan, every trip will cost $4.75 following a third crossing.
Currently, the same trip costs E-ZPass users $9.50 during peak hours and $7.50 during off-peak hours.
E-ZPass technology will retroactively lower the price of the first two trips so that all crossings within the 30-day time frame will get the discounted rate.
