Governor Cuomo Rolls Out Cashless Tolling Plan for MTA Tunnels, Bridges

New York Daily News reports, “This toll change is too late for Sonny Corleone. Bridges and tunnels owned by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority will get an automated ‘open road’ system that will mean no more tollbooths to tie up traffic, Gov. Cuomo announced Wednesday [October 5] at the New-York Historical Society.”

Newsday reports that the governor’s plan “to eliminate toll gates on New York City’s bridges and tunnels used by 800,000 motorists a day . . . would save commuters time and fuel. The electronic toll system, which would be implemented starting in January, was one of many improvements announced by Cuomo for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s bridges and tunnels, including a plan to transform the structures into luminescent works of public art.”
