Other Retail Outlets Expanding
E-ZPass Walk-In Centers in Albany, Syracuse, and Grand Island will go out of service on Friday, June 8, 2012, the New York State Thruway Authority announced. Walk-in Centers in Nanuet, Yonkers, Queens and Staten Island will remain open.
The closing of these locations is part of an ongoing commitment of the Thruway Authority to improve efficiency and lower costs. Closing the three locations will result in a $1 million annual savings.

Customers who wish to get an E-ZPass tag immediately can go to one of more than 750 E-ZPass “On-the-Go” retail locations where a customer may obtain a new tag or add an additional one to their existing account.
