Tolls Increase on NY Thruway for Drivers Without E-ZPass

December 2, 2020

BUFFALO, N.Y. — Tolls will increase for drivers on the New York Thruway who do not have an E-ZPass starting Jan. 1.

The State Thruway Authority voted Tuesday to raise tolls by 30% for people who are driving on the Thruway without an E-ZPass, a device that collects toll information and charges drivers. 

The Thruway eliminated cash tolls in November. That means drivers without an E-ZPass are sent a bill by mail. 

In addition to the 30% higher toll, drivers billed by mail will also be charged a $2 administrative fee every time they are billed. 

This is the first time in 10 years that tolls on the Thruway have been raised, the State Thruway Authority said. The revenue from the increase will support the conversion to cashless tolling. 

Tolls will also increase for most drivers crossing the Gov. Mario M. Cuomo Bridge in 2021 and 2022.
