Thruway's Over-Dimensional Permit System (TOPS)
Effective February 20, 2019, the Thruway Authority Over-Dimensional Permitting System (TOPS) will no longer be available to obtain Special Hauling Permits (SHPs) for trips taken on the New York State Thruway System. All single use SHPs must be ordered through the Highway Oversize/Overweight Credentialing System (HOOCS) (https://hoocs.dot.ny.gov/HOOCS/) . Commercial users must have an OSCAR account to apply for a SHP through HOOCS. Non-commercial users must have a NY.gov ID account.
