NY Senate Passes Bill to Exempt Some Syracuse Commuters from Paying Thruway Tolls

WSTM reports, “The push to get rid of some Thruway tolls in Onondaga County has taken another step forward. Senator John DeFrancisco . . . says the State Senate passed a bill [S2205] that would allow drivers to obtain a permit to commute between Thruway exits [34A and 39] . . . at no cost [except an initial permit fee]. The Thruway Authority would also have the ability to restrict the use of the permits to what it deems to be peak commuting hours.”
