OPTIMAL TOLL STRATEGIES FOR THE TRIBOROUGH BRIDGE AND TUNNEL AUTHORITY

The Triborough Bridge and Tunnel Authority (TBTA) operates seven bridges and two tunnels in New York City, all of which charge tolls. The TBTA is contemplating increasing tolls in early 1993. This study had two purposes related to the potential increase. The first purpose was to determine the impact of the toll increase on traffic volumes and revenue. The second purpose of the study was to determine the impact on revenue of creating a new toll class. Currently the TBTA has nine classes of vehicles that pay differing tolls.
