ME BEING CURIOUS!
It is estimated that 200,000 cars use the Verrazano every day!
So at $15 per car, leaving out trucks (axel charge)—- that is about $3 million per day!!!!!!!!
Verrazano aside, let take a look at the revenue generated from our (NYC) tolls
DON’T FORGET TO INCLUDE THE (000s) lol
So as you can see the revenue estimates from 2013 is in excess of $1.6 Billion!
JUST IN CASE ANYONE WAS INTERESTED IN THE OPERATING EXPENSES —- IN 2011, THE TOTAL operating expenses decreased for the third year in a row. Expenses in 2011 decreased 6.4 percent from 2010 to $358.8 million!
That leaves a pretty large revenue stream, probably one of the city most profitable. Wonder where that money goes lol
