According to News Channel 13, the New York State Thruway is moving quickly at changing over to cashless tolling across the state. The project, consisting of bringing seventy cashless toll overhangs, with a price tag of three hundred fifty-five million dollars, should be completed by the end of the year.

The seventy cashless toll systems, includes five hundred seventy miles of toll roads, tunnels, and bridges. This will make it more convenient and transform the Thruway for nearly two hundred sixty-seven million who drive it each year.

If you don't already have an E-Z Pass, driving under one of the new cashless systems will trigger a picture to be taken of your license plate. Then a bill will be sent to you by mail. Make sure your address is up to date with the DMV.
