Several New York City bridges are going to start charging more starting Sunday and one will become the most expensive in the nation.
The Verrazano-Narrow Bridge will rise from $17 to $19, about $12 with an EZ Pass, an increase for a daily commuter of what turns out to be about $100 a year.
Having a New Jersey-issued E-ZPass, unfortunately, will not trigger the discount rate. If you travel the Verrazzano on a regular basis, you will want to sign up for a New York E-ZPass as soon as humanly possible.
More than half a dozen other area bridges will see hikes too. See all the fare hikes here.
The MTA says the hikes are needed to achieve what it calls budgeted revenue targets.
Bus and subway fares will go up, too, but not until late April.
