The Delaware River Port Authority yesterday proposed toll and fare increases on its four bridges and mass transit system, which connects southern New Jersey to Philadelphia, as the agency considers issuing nearly $1 billion of bonds over the next three years to support large-scale expansion projects.

The toll and fare hikes, which are subject to board approval, would help financ a large-scale, $3 billion expansion plan that officials expect to have up and running by 2017 and would increase service on the authority's PATCO line in Camden and Gloucester counties and in downtown Philadelphia.
