Cashless tolling begins today at Holland Tunnel; GWB and Lincoln Tunnel are next
Cashless tolling starts today at the Holland Tunnel, the first of the Port Authority's three Hudson River crossings to get the update.
There are now two options for drivers when they go through the tunnel: either pay with E-ZPass or an overhead camera will take a picture of your car and you will be sent a bill.
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey say it’s state-of the art technology and will help make the tunnel safer and faster.
Cash toll collection at the tunnel was suspended back in March due to the coronavirus pandemic. Authorities say the new system will only enhance the experience.
Cashless tolling should be installed at the George Washington Bridge and Lincoln Tunnel in the next 18 months.
The Port Authority has also launched an app so drivers won't have to wait for a bill to pay and have 24/7 access to customer service reps.
