This Is A Bad Thing Because...?

According to the Post, the Port Authority toll hikes were a stupid, awful, no good idea because less people are driving so parking garages are suffering and more people are taking mass transit. I fail to see why this is a bad outcome.

In fact you know what would be even better then Port Authority toll hikes? Congestion pricing and use the revenue to maintain and expand mass transit service to alleviate the crowding on trains that the Post is oh so worried about. And, since the Post is so worried about garages, we should make all curbside parking market rate so drivers have an increased incentive to park in a garage instead of circling forever when they can't find a spot. That would improve the fortunes of garages far more then this toll hike has hurt them.
