2 state NY senators propose changes to E-ZPass system

The New York State Thruway went cash-free less than a month ago and soon, higher tolls are coming for anyone without an E-ZPass.

Senators Tim Kennedy and Rachel May proposed a bill to make the E-ZPass more accessible with two major changes.

The first would temporarily waive the $10 deposit required to purchase an E-Z pass for 60 days. The other changes they’re proposing include also allowing people to replenish their passes with cash at any location where you can purchase an E-ZPass.
