People traveling from New Jersey to Philadelphia are now paying more to make the trip. The Delaware River Port Authority has raised tolls on its four bridges and fares on the PATCO commuter train line. The changes go into effect today.

For cars, bridge tolls will go to $4 from $3. And rides on PATCO will go up by 10 percent.

Commuters should brace for more regular increases from the agency.

It's already approved increases in two years and plans smaller inflation-based toll and fare increases every two years after that.
