Mayor Bloomberg spoke out in favor of the Port Authority's toll hikes for its bridges and tunnels on his radio program yesterday (you know, when he wasn't talking about unemployed people rioting). And why is Bloomberg for the hikes, which are $1.50 for the crossings and 25 cents for PATH service? INFRASTRUCTURE, people!
According to the Post, Bloomberg admitted the increases willl “certainly hurt some businesses and some people... On the other hand, if one of the bridges fell down, how would you feel about that for the economy?" He added, "If you want them to provide services, they’re going to have to get the money from someplace. It’s easy to ... say it’s an outrage. When you have a better source, let me know."
The AAA is trying to get the feds to stop the hikes.
