The gas prices are still very high and before we know it, summer will be here and we are going to want to travel. Not only will we have to worry about gas prices, but the New York State Thruway isn't cheap to drive. One lawmaker is proposing a bill that would make the NY Thruway toll-free this summer.
Cashless tolls will arrive this November across New York state. That means that there will be no more toll booths and pictures of license plates will be taken from up above. What happens if you have a peeling plate? Will it be able to be read?
If you have been waiting to get your EZ Pass, when you head out on the Thruway next month, you will need it. The New York State Thruway Authority announced that their trial run has come to an end and they are ready to get started.
In 2016, Governor Cuomo froze Thruway tolls through 2020. With that time coming quickly, Cuomo hasn't released a policy on what he plans to do but we'll surely feel it with the Thruway Authority's rising debt.
