NYS Thruway dispenses with cash, for now

Mar 22, 2020

The New York state Thruway Authority will be implementing emergency toll procedures in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Cash customers will receive a bill in the mail instead of paying cash until further notice. The bill will arrive in about 30 days.

Drivers without E-ZPass who head to the cash lane upon entering the Thruway should continue without collecting a ticket. When they exit the Thruway, they’ll tell the toll collector at which exit they entered and provide their license plate numbers.

The Thruway Authority’s emergency procedures take effect Sunday around 8 p.m.
