The Delaware River Port Authority of Pennsylvania and New Jersey yesterday approved toll and fare increases on its four bridges and its PATCO mass-transit system, with those hikes to take effect on Sept. 14.

New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine will have 10 days after receiving the minutes of yesterday's meeting to review and possibly nullify any votes. While the authority is a bi-state agency, with Pennsylvania Gov. Edward Rendell chairing the agency's board of commissioners, Rendell does not have veto authority of DRPA board decisions, according to DRPA spokesman Ed Kasuba.
