AET Transition Won’t Displace MTA Toll Collectors

The New York Times reports that, according to MTA spokesperson Beth DeFalco, “no jobs would be cut as bridges and tunnels transitioned to automated tolls; tollbooth personnel will be reassigned to other posts focused on safety, security and enforcement.” The newspaper adds, “Wayne Joseph, the president of Bridge and Tunnel Officers Benevolent Association, said the changes announced by the governor had been foreseen for years.”
