About 890,000 fewer cars and trucks used the crossings from Sept. 19 through Nov. 22 compared with the number that did in roughly the same period in 2010, a 4 percent drop. During that period, ridership on PATH, the Port Authority subway connecting Manhattan and New Jersey, rose by about 560,000, or 3.7 percent, the agency said…
E-ZPass tolls during peak travel times rose to $9.50 from $8. By 2015, the cash toll will be $15 and the E-ZPass toll will be $12.50. About 3.5 percent more riders started using E-ZPass and, over all, the Port Authority received 20 percent more in toll revenue than it did the year before.
