Tolls on all NYC bridges and tunnels increased this past Sunday March 19th. Recheck that all your toll reimbursements reflect the new, higher rates.
Uber is still paying the old rate not the new rate.

Tolls on the Robert F. Kennedy, Throgs Neck, Bronx-Whitestone bridges and the Brooklyn-Battery and Queens Midtown tunnels will rise from $5.54 to $5.76 for E-ZPass users, and from $8 to $8.50 for cash payments.

Driving into Staten Island via the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge will cost E-ZPass users $11.52, up from $11.08, and the cash cost will go up to a whopping $17 from $16. Tolls are not collected on Brooklyn-bound trips across the bridge.

The toll on the Henry Hudson Bridge is raising by a dime for E-ZPass users to $2.64, and by 50 cents for those paying cash to $6.

The Marine Parkway-Gil Hodges Memorial and Cross Bay Veterans Memorial bridges will remain the cheapest under MTA jurisdiction, and will also see the smallest toll hikes. The cost of those routes will increase from $2.08 to $2.16 for E-ZPass users, and from $4 to $4.25 for cash payments.

Hopefully you've been collecting your nickels and dimes, New York, because Uber is about to take all of them. Imagine Uber's horror at discovering drivers being compensated less than the should - lol. And how fast is Uber likely to fix this problem?

There are reports hat Uber is now paying the correct toll some of the time. Unfortunately, Uber is also back to "losing" tolls. Always check for correct compensation whenever you pay a toll with a PAX in the car. If you don't complain then Uber profits at your expense.
