E-ZPass users may get a break when the Metropolitan Transportation Authority Board votes next week on toll hikes.
But those who use cash-only lanes should prepare to dig deeper into their pockets.
According to the Daily News, drivers who pay with E-ZPass will be hit with a five-percent increase, just half of what was originally proposed.
The paper says drivers who pay cash will be hit with an 18-percent hike.
Board members tell the News they want to encourage more drivers to use E-ZPass, which they say will reduce MTA labor costs, traffic congestion, and pollution.
The agency had originally proposed a 25-cent to 50-cent increase per trip on its bridges and tunnels.
If approved, the hikes will go into effect in January to help close the agency’s budget gap.
