Another victim of the coronavirus: Cash tolls

Say goodbye to the toll booth.

Cash payments will not return to Maryland toll facilities after theĀ coronavirus emergency is lifted, Gov. Larry Hogan (R) announced last week, officially marking the end of the traditional tollbooth in the state.

In mid-March the Maryland Transportation Authority temporarily eliminated the cash option at the Bay Bridge and all tolling facilities in the state to limit interaction between drivers and toll collectors and promote social distancing during the health crisis.
