ALBANY – The New York State Thruway Authority is holding three virtual public hearings to discuss rising Thruway tolls from drivers who don’t use E-ZPass.
The hike is scheduled to go into effect on January 1 and would not impact those who use E-ZPass.
Hearings will take place Tuesday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., Wednesday from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., and Thursday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. via Cisco Webex and streamed online at thruway.ny.gov.
Members of the public can register at thruway.ny.gov to comment during the virtual public hearings, and provide their name, phone number and valid email address.
A confirmation email will sent to speakers with instructions on how to participate in the Webex hearing.
On each day of the hearing, a link will be available for individuals who do not wish to submit comments to watch the hearing.
The Thruway is scheduled to convert to an entirely cashless tolling system by the end of the year.
