  Section 1. Subdivisions 3 and 11 of section 1266 of the public author-
ities law, subdivision 3 as amended and subdivision 11 as added by chap-

  3. The authority may establish, levy and collect or cause to be estab-
lished,  levied  and  collected  and,  in  the  case  of a joint service
arrangement, join with others in the establishment, levy and  collection
of  such  fares, tolls, rentals, rates, charges and other fees as it may
deem necessary, convenient or desirable for the use and operation of any

or  other  arrangement,  including  joint service arrangements, with the
authority. Any such fares, tolls, rentals, rates, charges or other  fees

only if approved by resolution of the authority adopted by not less than
a majority vote of the whole number of members of the authority then  in
office,  with  the chairman having one additional vote in the event of a
tie vote, and only after a public hearing, provided however, that fares,
tolls, rentals, rates, charges or other fees for the  transportation  of
passengers  on  any  transportation  facility which are in effect at the
time that the then owner  of  such  transportation  facility  becomes  a
subsidiary corporation of the authority or at the time that operation of
such  transportation  facility  is  commenced  by  the  authority  or is
commenced under contract, lease or other  arrangement,  including  joint
service  arrangements,  with  the  authority  may be continued in effect
