DRPA Bridge Tolls May Be Lowered For Commuters

The Delaware River Port Authority has good news for you today.
You heard that right I did say "good news" -- especially if you are a commuter who uses their bridges between NJ and PA regularly.
The Authority took a step toward lowering bridge tolls for commuters and other frequent users today, with the finance committee approving frequent-user discount.
Under the committee's proposal, which will go before the authority's board of commissioners July 15, commuters who use the Ben Franklin, Walt Whitman, Betsy Ross, and Commodore Barry bridges would save $18 a month. The discount would start later this year.
The vote at the committee meeting came after traffic studies and financial reports were presented. Those reports indicated that the measure would not affect DRPA's ability to pay for ongoing projects.
