The New York State Thruway Authority could consider increasing toll costs to motorists.
A meeting slated for Monday, December 5th includes a 5% rate hike for E-ZPass customers, and a larger hike for non- E-ZPass drivers.
Those drivers already pay 15% more than people with the travel pass. If the proposal is approved, drivers without an E-ZPass would pay 75% more.
It wouldn’t take effect until January 2024. Public hearings would be held before adoption, too.
According to CNYCentral, the higher tolls are needed to meet future financial needs of the Thruway. The Thruway Authority also notes that it’s been a decade since a system-wide increase.
