The bridge tolls for thee, Brooklyn.

Starting next month, the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge will be tolled in both directions for the first time in 35 years, the MTA said Monday.

Beginning Dec. 1, most Verrazzano drivers who use E-ZPass will pay $6.12 in both the Staten Island and Brooklyn directions, officials said. All other drivers will pay $9.50.

Staten Island residents will only be charged just $2.75 to cross the bridge in either direction, however.

The current Staten Island-bound toll is currently $12.24 with E-ZPass and $19 for everyone else.

Brooklyn-bound drivers had been exempt thanks to 1986 federal legislation that made the span the only one in the country with mandatory one-directional tolls.

  1. This way they can raise the tolls even more without you noticing.

    A $2 increase on a one way toll sounds like more than a $1.05 raise each way

  2. Wicked evil sodomites. The total opposite of “zeh neheneh vizeh loh chosir”. Until now, you were able to come from Monsey, Catskills, Montreal, Lakewood, etc… and not have to pay to cross over into Brooklyn. Now the evil wicked unelected bureaucrats are inflicting financial pain with impunity. And all this is after they spent millions to “correct” the spelling of the name Varrezano.
