BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Tolls will increase starting January 1 for drivers on the New York Thruway who do not have an E-ZPass.
The State Thruway Authority voted Tuesday to raise tolls by 30 percent for drivers without an E-ZPass.
The Thruway eliminated cash tolls in November. That means drivers without an E-ZPass are sent a bill by mail.
Starting in 2021, anyone billed by mail will also be charged a $2 administrative fee each time they are billed.
The State Thruway Authority says this is the first time in 10 years that tolls on the Thruway have been raised.
