Thruway Toll Adjustment - Effective January 1, 2024

On Sept. 18, 2023, the New York State Thruway Authority Board of Directors voted to approve the toll adjustment proposal on the New York State Thruway system. The vote comes after a public toll adjustment process that began on Dec. 5, 2022, which included five public hearings in 2023, receipt and consideration of public comments, completion of the Environmental Assessment for the proposed toll modification, as well as the completion of all of the necessary actions required by the Public Authorities Law, the State Administrative Procedure Act (SAPA) and the State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA).  The Thruway is a user-fee supported roadway and receives no dedicated federal, state or local tax dollars.

The Thruway Authority, supported by analysis from its independent traffic engineering consultants, determined that there are additional revenues required for the Authority to fulfill its system-wide operating, debt service, and capital needs through the upcoming forecast period.
