Cashless Tolling Begins at MTA Tunnels

Jan 4 |

Cashless tolling will begin on January 4, 2017 at 3 AM at the Hugh Carey (Battery Tunnel) and Queens Midtown Tunnels.  Drivers will no longer have to stop at toll collection booths.  Nothing will change for E-Z customers since overhead sensors will read their E-Z Passes and automatically deduct the discounted toll.  Car owners without an E-Z Pass will receive a bill in the mail.  E-Z Pass customers must mount their E-Z Pass tag on their front windshield.

All MTA bridges and tolls will have Cashless Tolling by the end of 2017.  The system is designed to enable traffic to move more efficiently and without delay.

Drivers that do not have an existing E-Z Pass can obtain one online or by calling 800-333-8655.
