Statement on the Port Authority’s Fare and Toll Increases

“The New York-New Jersey metropolitan region, with $1.8 trillion in economic output, is one of the largest regional economies in the world. To adequately service the employers and workers who generate this economic activity requires continuous investment in modernization and expansion of airports, rail and other transportation infrastructure. The business community fully backs the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey’s proposal to increase tolls and fares in order to fund the transportation projects outlined in the authority’s Capital Plan,” said Kathryn Wylde, President and CEO of the Partnership for New York City.
