VerrazanoNew Yorkers may have to cough up $20 to cross the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge as early as 2018, according to one MTA official.

If toll hikes for the bridge continue rising at the same rate they have for the past two decades, that is the year they would hit $20.

Staten Island’s MTA board representative Allen P. Cappelli puts that figure at $25, and feels residents are being unfairly targeted.

If tolls raise exactly as they have over the last 20 years, they would hit $22.50 in 2018, $28 in 2023 and $37.50 in 2033.
