Speaking of money, rates went up recently for regular commuters to and from New York.
For those commuting by train to New York from New Jersey, the monthly train pass went from $54 up to $89 dollars. For drivers, those using pre-paid cards went up by $4 per ride.
If you're a driver using cash, your toll goes up from $8 to a whopping $15, each time you drive to and from the city. Those using cash at the tolls slow down traffic and require humans to be hired to provide change.
Many, many people commute between New Jersey and New York daily.
