NY State Is Going Cashless

The Buffalo News reports, “A cashless toll system is coming to New York State — but for now the Cuomo administration is only saying the electronic collection efforts will be based at bridges and tunnels in New York City. Given the move by other states to cashless toll collections — most recently New York’s neighbor Massachusetts on its turnpike system — transportation advocates have said it’s only a matter of time before collection methods move to the Thruway as a way to bring high-speed toll collection zones statewide.”
