A New York County Wants Cuomo Bridge Tolls Discounted for Its Residents

Rockland County Times reports, the Rockland County, New York, Legislature voted unanimously yesterday to urge the New York Thruway’s Mario Cuomo Bridge Toll Advisory Panel to recommend discounted tolls for county residents. “Rockland County has far fewer options when it comes to public transportation and getting into Westchester or New York City for a job or a cultural event,” one lawmaker reportedly said. “That fact must be acknowledged and one way is to provide steeply discounted toll rates to Rockland County bridge users.”
