New toll rates in effect at NYC bridge and tunnel crossings

New toll rates are now in effect at all bridge and tunnel crossings in New York City, including the Throgs Neck and Whitestone Bridges.
Both bridges will now cost $6.94 on E-ZPass. For those who get their toll by mail, the price will now be $11.19.
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority says the increase is part of a 5-year plan to generate $117 million in an effort to keep roads safe.
