Rebate to allow Bronx E-ZPass holders to cross Henry Hudson Bridge for free

Posted: Updated:
THE BRONX -

Most New York drivers know that getting around the city can get expensive, so Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz is taking measures to help decrease the financial burden for Bronx residents.

Dinowitz has secured a rebate for the Henry Hudson Bridge. Under the rebate, Bronx residents won't have to pay to get across the Harlem River.

Anyone with an E-ZPass and a car registered in Bronx County will be able to cross the Henry Hudson Bridge for free.

Bronx residents will first have to register with E-ZPass to be eligible. When drivers cross the bridge, the toll will charge the account but will immediately be credited back.

Residents say they like the idea. But representatives for the TransitCenter are opposed to the move. TransitCenter said in a statement, "This money would go farther if it was spent improving bus service in the Bronx instead."

The bridge rebate will start next year.
