Thruway toll hike

ALBANY — Cashless tolling issues, maximizing non-toll revenue sources and greater transparency should have been resolved before the New York State Thruway Authority proposed a systemwide toll increases to begin in 2024, according to a report from state Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli.

“The Thruway Authority’s toll increase proposal comes at a time of extraordinary challenges for New Yorkers who are faced with rising costs for everything from food to shelter to gas,” DiNapoli said in a statement. “The Thruway should be more transparent with the public and disclose critical information and identify and put in place all possible cost-savings and alternative revenue actions to minimize costs to drivers. Raising tolls should be the last option and the Thruway has more work to do.”
