New York City: MTA approves split tolling on Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge

Tolls on the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge will be split in half and charged in both directions by the end of the year.

On Wednesday, the MTA Board unanimously approved split tolling on the span with an expectation that the new tolling system — which is expected to net the agency millions in additional annual revenue — will be up and running by the end of 2020.

“We expect that split tolling will generate an incremental $10 million in revenue for the MTA on an annual basis,” said MTA Chairman and CEO Patrick Foye.
