Tobin Bridge tolls to refuse cash in ’14

Cash will not be accepted at Tobin Bridge tolls beginning early next year, and the Massachusetts Department of Transportation is hoping to transition several other major thoroughfares to electronic-only payment systems within several years, the state transportation secretary said today.

Richard A. Davey said the changes will reduce congestion and operating costs at the tolls, and the department plans to do the same on the Massachusetts Turnpike and the Logan International Airport tunnels in coming years. The new system will remove toll booths in favor of overhead sensors, allowing drivers to travel at normal highway speeds while paying tolls electronically with E-ZPasses.
