In an effort to protect its workers during the coronavirus pandemic, the Thruway Authority announced that yesterday was its last day taking cash payments, according to WIVB. If you don't have an E-Z Pass, you will be asked for your license plate number, so it is best to have it written down, if you don't have it memorized. A bill will be mailed to you, so make sure your most up-to-date address is on file with the Department of Motor Vehicles. The Thruway Authority says you will not be charged a fee.

"Yes. For the safety of Thruway Authority personnel and the traveling public and out of an abundance of caution, emergency tolling procedures are in place to create appropriate social distancing for cash collection until further notice." ~ NYS Thruway Authority
