Pike now considering a smaller toll hike - adds fee for Fast Lane transponders

I thought the Pike was trying to encourage people to use Fast Lane.

Turnpike dials down toll hike plan - Local News Updates - The Boston Globe
"Board members said today they would consider next month an alternative plan that would raise tolls by 25 cents at the Allston-Brighton and Weston booths and $2 at the Sumner and Ted Williams tunnels.

In other action, the board approved a plan unveiled Wednesday to impose a monthly fee of 50 cents on all Fast Lane transponder users while at the same time offering new and replacement transponders for free. The transponders previously cost drivers $25.95."
