    This is the Henry Hudson Bridge. It looks like they're gonna lay off all the Toll collectors. I can only imagine the rest of the bridges to follow suit.

    What will change for Cash customers?
    Cash payment for tolls will no longer be accepted at the Henry Hudson Bridge starting Saturday, November 10th at 11 PM. All drivers will proceed through the toll plaza WITHOUT STOPPING AND USE ANY LANE. No changes for E-ZPass customers.

    How Will I Pay Tolls?
    Your toll can be paid with an MTA E-ZPass at the lower rate or the Tolls by Mail program at the higher cash rate.

    What’s Tolls by Mail?
    Vehicles without an E-ZPass are identified by license plate number and owners are mailed a bill. Tolls are charged at the higher cash rate. Unpaid bills are subject to late fees and violations.

    Interesting. If your car is a rental, I guess the rental agency gets billed and charges you? :dontknow:

    They're forcing EZ Pass on people. And raping you if you don't succumb. I wish that they still had those coin operated gates.

    Talk about a drain on the system. MTA toll collectors make a mint. Especially if they've been there for 30 years. I still recognized guys that I saw regularly 15 to 20 years ago.

    One they get everyone locked into Ezpass, they can then proceed to debit your acct for the chicken shit tix they give with the traffic light cams

    In Illinois they have an ipass system. You can get the ipass and fly through or stop and go and the manual lane is double. Would you pay twice as much and spend more time to insure the human keeps his job or give into the evil big money for the cheaper price and ease?

    in Cali, they just turned 2 carpool lanes on the 110 into Toll lanes; they even post how much it would cost to zoom down the now empty lanes. My ride home every day would be about $8.

    so, the carpool lane people are now on the remaining lanes, which, surprise surprise, are even more gridlocked than usual.

    the only modern thing is that you have to get some sort of a transponder, and then every time you go under an overpass, you get billed.

    Fast lanes for the 1%! :woot:

    it looks to be about $250-$300 per month; idk if it would save that much in gas. time, yes, for sure
