After several years without an increase, tolls are set to rise on the bridges and tunnels to New York. The Port Authority is increasing tolls by $1, blaming high inflation and revenue losses due to the pandemic. The increases, the first since 2019, will go into effect on Jan. 1, assuming the agency’s board of commissioners approves the Port Authority’s new $8.3 billion budget for 2023 next month.
