NY Thruway Currently Has No Plans for AET Expansion Upstate

The Buffalo News reports, “There are no specific plans to bring a cashless toll system to the upstate portions of the Thruway even though it now operates at the Tappan Zee Bridge between Rockland and Westchester counties,” according to Bill Finch, the acting executive director of the Thruway Authority, who testified during a joint legislative committee hearing on the Cuomo administration’s transportation budget proposals on February 15. “We’ve looked at it. We have no plans at the moment,’’ Finch reportedly told lawmakers.
