Cashless Tolling Only at the Triborough/RFK Bridge

Cashless Tolling Only at the Triborough/RFK Bridge

As of June 15 2017, currency will no longer be accepted at the Triborough/RFK Bridge as cashless tolling begins. Governor Cuomo’s office is encouraging commuters to get E-ZPass and save on tolls. According to the Governor’s office, cashless tolling will reduce congestion and improve travel time for motorists, and will also reduce carbon emissions and decrease the amount of fuel burned by drivers, who will no longer have to stop and start waiting to pay tolls.
