New York’s Comptroller is asking the Thruway Authority to implement more cost-cutting measures before raising tolls on commuters. In a new report, Tom DiNapoli is urging the Thruway Authority to reconsider its proposed multi-year systemwide toll increases, scheduled to begin in 2024. He says the Thruway first needs to improve its operations and maximize non-toll revenues. He says as New Yorkers are faced with rising costs for food, shelter and gas, the Thruway should be more transparent with the public and put in place all possible cost-savings and alternative revenue actions to minimize costs to drivers. Raising tolls, he said, should be the last option.
