ALBANY – The New York State Thruway Authority continues its push to make the state thruway system cashless; reporting that 10,000 E-ZPass On-The-Go tags were sold since the beginning of the year.

To purchase a E-ZPass tag visit thruway.ny.gov. Tags must be registered online or by calling the number listed on the package.

The $25 cost is credited in full to the customer’s account when the tag becomes active in 24 hours.

Officials say over 10,000 of the E-ZPass On-the-Go tags have been sold over the past four months.

New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo announced in January that the entire thruway system will be converted to cashless tolling by the end of 2020.
