The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is considering a toll hike for its bridges and tunnels, the New York Post reported on Tuesday.
The raise may be as high as 25 percent, and it may come by the end of the year. The proposed hike would raise tolls to $10 for all Hudson River crossings controlled by the Port Authority, including the Lincoln Tunnel, George Washington Bridge, Outerbridge Crossing and Goethals Bridge.
There have been no plans presented to the board of the Port Authority for consideration, certainly none has been presented to me. If one is presented, I certainly will give it due consideration, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said at a press conference today, according to a report from The Star-Ledger.
Both Gov. Christie and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo would have to approve any changes to Port Authority tolls.
