Motorists without E-ZPass using the New York State Thruway cashless tolling system can pay their toll bill a variety of ways. After a motorist travels through a cashless facility, an image is captured of the license plate. Using the address on file with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), a toll bill is mailed to the registered owner of the vehicle. Motorists are required by law to keep their address current with the Department of Motor Vehicles to ensure bills are mailed to the proper owner. Drivers must update their address with the DMV within 10 days of moving.
Motorists can avoid fines or possible registration suspension by paying their toll bills on time.
Toll bills are sent to the registered owner of the vehicle to the address on file with DMV. Motorists are required by state law to keep their address current with DMV to ensure bills are mailed to the proper owner.
If a motorist’s address is not current with DMV and they do not receive a toll bill in the mail, they are still responsible for paying their toll through another payment option.
There are various payments options available for motorists to pay their toll bill.
If a motorist prefers to pay the toll before they receive the toll bill in the mail, they can visit tollsbymailny.com and choose “Pay Toll,” then select the option to search and pay for tolls by license plate. Drivers from the United States and Canada can select their Country and State/Province from the drop-down menu and proceed to pay. Toll transactions will be available approximately one week from the date of travel.
Motorists can also get more information by calling the Tolls by Mail customer service center at 1-844-826-8400, select language and then press 9 to speak to a representative.
