Feb 24, 2022 12:45 am

MidHudson News is reporting as of Tue., Mar. 1, all five of the New York State Bridge Authority's bridges will be cashless. Beginning at midnight on March 1, the Mid-Hudson Bridge over the Hudson River, connecting Highland to Poughkeepsie, will transition to a cashless toll system. The system is already in use on the Bear Mountain, Newburgh-Beacon, Kingston-Rhinecliff, and Rip Van Winkle bridges. Motorists will no longer have to stop at a toll booth but will instead drive non-stop under gantries with sensors and cameras that read E-ZPass tags and take license plate images. Vehicles with E-ZPass tags are automatically charged to their accounts and vehicles without those tags have their license plate images captured and a toll bill is mailed to the registered owner of the vehicle.
