Cuomo Proposes Reducing NYS Thruway Tolls
Governor Andrew Cuomo is proposing reducing tolls on the New York State Thruway.
It's part of the Governor's 2016 agenda that he says includes the largest investment in transportation infrastructure in upstate New York.
Part of the proposal aims to cut tolls in half for the one-million drivers and businesses who use the Thruway the most. Tolls would also be eliminated for farmers bringing their goods to market.
Cuomo wants to freeze Thruway tolls for every driver until at least 2020, by investing $700 million in Thruway infrastructure on top of last year's commitment of over a billion-dollars.
