Some residents in the tri-state area are not happy this morning after a congestion pricing plan document was leaked.
As News 12 has been following, on top of current tolls, commuting into lower Manhattan will cost drivers an additional $15 once it goes into effect next year.
Trucks could pay as much as $24 to $36, depending on their size or $7.50 for a motorcycle. Taxi riders can expect an additional $1.25 per fare.
The aim of the plan is to reduce traffic congestion, and to encourage the use of public transportation and other alternative modes of travel.
One commuter News 12 spoke with says he doesn't think this will solve congestion on the roads at all.
