Governor Cuomo Announces Cashless Tolling to Begin on Rockaway Bridges on April 30

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced cashless tolling will begin on the Marine Parkway-Gil Hodges Memorial and Cross Bay Veterans Bridges in Queens on April 30. The transition to cashless tolling is a major component of the Governor’s plan to reimagine New York's crossings for the 21st century and will reduce congestion and improve travel time at Rockaway’s major crossings ahead of the region’s summer travel season. The Rockaway resident rebate program is unaffected by the switch to cashless tolling.
