A Queens official is renewing efforts to make the Cross Bay Bridge free of charge.
State Assemblyman Phillip Goldfeder has launched an online petition for residents of the Rockaways and Broad Channel to sign.
He's urging the Metropolitan Transportation Authority and Governor Andrew Cuomo to put an end to the toll on the only intraborough bridge in the city.
Residents have to pay to get to their local post office, police precinct and other neighborhood resources.
The Cross Bay Bridge connects the Rockaway Peninsula to the rest of Queens and the Belt Parkway.
The bridge is $3.25 each way in cash, but locals and E-ZPass users get a discount.
To sign the petition, visit Goldfeder's homepage on the State Assembly's website.
