LostCatMedia 9 months, 2 weeks ago on Port of Hood River looks at bridge toll hike

"The toll increase would build up reserves, assuming that either path could become a reality."

So... raising the prices isn't to cover the cost, but build their cash reserves? Maybe cause the spent it all building a hotel and remodeling the waterfront?

"He acknowledged that via the new toll hike, cash tolls will go up at a steeper rate than electronic fares. That would encourage Breezeby use, which requires less staff time to cover. “It’s more expensive for the port to have a cash toll,” he said."

So... again, the poorest American's will face the brunt of greed hidden behind better business? HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO HAVE PEOPLE STAND AND COLLECT MONEY?!

I've done the math, and if you work 5 days a week in Oregon, you pay around 980 dollars a year to the bridge. 1k. Now they want 2k?

This is bull.
