NYS Thruway dispenses with cash, for now
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.
