Tolls are increasing on the New York State Thruway effective Jan. 1.

The base NY E-ZPass rate will increase by 5% outside of the Gov. Mario M. Cuomo bridge. This is the first increase for these customers since 2010. A second 5% increase will take effect January 2027.

Standard toll rates for non-NY E-ZPass and Tolls by Mail will increase to 8.6 cents per mile for both groups by 2027. These rates will remain below the current standard rates of many other systems across the nation, according to a statement from the agency.

The New York State Thruway Authority Board of Directors approved the new rates in September after a 10-month public process.
