BILL NUMBER:S3924 TITLE OF BILL: An act in relation to discontinuing the Cross Bay Veterans Memorial Bridge toll plaza PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: Directs the Triborough Bridge and Tunnel Authority (TBTA) and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) to discontinue the Cross Bay Veteran's bridge toll plaza. JUSTIFICATION: The residents of Rockaway and the surrounding areas, many of whom use the bridge as a local road to travel to and from work, or to take their children to school, pay the only intra-borough toll in the MT A system. Charging a toll on this bridge is the equivalent of charging a toll to cross Broadway in Manhattan, and residents should not have to bear this burden. The bridge divides one community board, police precinct and school district. Residents must pay for the privilege of daily activities such as shopping, picking up mail at the post office, going to the hospital or visiting neighbors. Furthermore, residents have no legitimate travel alternative and the financial impact on economic development and existing business has been devastating.
