Cash no longer accepted for GW Bridge tolls

Starting today, drivers approaching the George Washington Bridge looking to cross the Hudson River from New Jersey into Manhattan — or in the other direction –will go through electronic tolls.

Your cash will no longer be any good at the toll booths. Drivers without E-ZPass who would otherwise be paying cash will instead have their license plates photographed by overhead cameras and then bills will be sent to them by mail.

The move from the port authority of New York and New Jersey comes as a way to help ease congestion on the bridge.
