NYC plans to add daily extra toll for driving into the city via GWB

Driving into the core of Manhattan always took grit. Now, it could cost some New Jersey commuters an extra $3,000 a year, according to lawmakers.

New York City leaders are moving ahead with a long-delayed plan to charge drivers an extra toll as they enter the city, aimed at easing congestion and raising money for public transit systems; the extra toll would apply to vehicles entering the city via the George Washington Bridge, not  via the Lincoln or Holland tunnels. But it won’t happen without a fight; the cross-Hudson battle lines have been drawn.
