The New York State Thruway Authority is poised to vote on proposed toll hikes set to begin in 2024.
That session is slated for Monday, September 18, where the board of directors will deliberate over increasing tolls for both E-ZPass and tolls-by-mail users on the extensive 570-mile highway.
Should the proposal gain approval, in-state E-ZPass users can anticipate a 5% toll raise in 2024, with another 5% hike in 2027.
Notably, out-of-state E-ZPass users would witness a significant uptick, paying 75% more than New York residents, a marked increase from the current 15% difference.
Meanwhile, tolls-by-mail users will also face the same 75% differential compared to New York E-ZPass holders.
