Channel 13 Poll: Tolls on the East River Bridges?
Channel 13 is promoting tonight’s episode of "New York Voices" with an online poll asking, "Should there be tolls on the East River Bridges?" I don’t know. Should motorists get a free ride into Manhattan while subway riders face massive fare increases? What do you think?
The show airs at 8pm:
Tuesday night’s New York Voices will look at some recommendations put
forward by a special commission to help the MTA confront its financial
crisis. One of those proposals is to create tolls on the East and
Harlem River bridges. These tolls could help the MTA avoid major
service cuts and fare increases, and would help pay for a new regional
bus service. Are they a good idea? Tell us what you think.
