Posted on September 8, 2011

WOODLAND PARK, N.J. — The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PATH) decided last month to increase its bus tolls 150 percent, NorthJersey.com reported. NJ Transit and Coach USA, which pay $4 per bus to use the three Hudson River crossings, will see an increase to $10 per bus. That amount will jump annually until 2014, when the toll will be $13.

Transit system officials told NorthJersey.com the increase was necessary to deal with multiple financial setbacks and to complete several projects, including rebuilding the World Trade Center. For the full story, click here.
