    logging in with your smartphone? use apps such as google maps-traffic and Waze to check up on the traffic. chances are you have a choice of which way to best get to where you are going.

    If u come thru my cash lane you'll be in and out in less than 5sec... I keep things moving expeditiously

    Is it the Triborough Bridge or the RFK Bridge? It's been the latter since November 2008, but New Yorkers, online maps, and even some government agencies haven't committed to the change. Read more

    Why do New Yorkers never leave? Cannot afford the tolls. Best route in the evenings for a run to LGA.

    If youre driving in early morning, get there before 655am if youre paying cash. You'll be stuck when the toll people switch out.

    Don't even bother trying to cross this bridge unless you have EZ pass - you could be waiting quite a while if you want to pay cash.

    slow down for the sharp turn after the bridge on the Bronx-bound lanes, the pavement is a mess and will jack up your alignment!

    Watch out for Port Authority Police cars parked on the shoulder enforcing the speed limit.

    The city has to claim it has no money bit can waste it changing the name of the bridge. No pictures allowed from the bridge
