MTA To Resume Toll Collections For Both Bridges

rockawaytoll

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) plan to collect tolls in both direction starting at 12:01AM Saturday, December 1 for both the Cross Bay Veterans and Marine Parkway-Gil Hodges bridges. The $3.25 cash toll and $1.80 E-ZPass toll were suspended to aid post-Sandy recovery efforts.

Improve service! More public transportation!

Sound off! Fight back! Spread the news!

Update: MTA spokesman said the agency is unable to suspend toll charges due to budgetary concerns and that MTA is required to get a flow of revenue.

  1. @MTAInsider why is the toll being placed back on the CBB and marine park bridge? #Rockaway is still a disaster area disgrace#rebuildrockaway

  2. @joelhota @NYGovCuomo need to reconsider tolls on MPB & CBB into/out of #Rockaway People are still rebuilding! It’s ridic to reinstate 12/1!

  3. Shame on you @MTAInsider + @NYCMayorsOffice for resuming bridge tolls to #Rockaway. Volunteers & residents trying to clean up need this!?

  4. @NYGovCuomo who’s decision was it to resume toll collection on bridges connecting #Rockaway to the mainland?Not a good idea #Sandy

  5. Don’t you think it’s a tadddddd bit too early to reinstate the tolls for Rockaway’s two bridges? New York State has zero empathy…

  6. The tolls are back in rockaway. Hope this will not deter volunteers from coming out to help. MTA should reconsider; there’s more to be done.

  7. Tolls coming back while some people STILL without heat or electric. That’s bull ! Call gov’s office : 518 474 8390. Call Goldfeder.

  8. @dbnybh @eric_ulrich @mikebloomberg @thewavenews stop the tolls to #rockaway until the businesses and banks open. We can’t afford this!

  9. @NYGovCuomo please stop inflicting more hardship on rockaway residents. No tolls on rockaway!! It’s the decent thing to do for us!!
