Cash Toll Payments Suspended On The Garden State Parkway
As of tonight at 10 (Tuesday, March 24th), the Garden State Parkway will stop taking cash for tolls due to COVID-19 coronavirus concerns.
Don't let that make you think that they won't be charging tolls, though.
In a Tuesday afternoon announcement, the New Jersey Turnpike Authority, the state department that runs both the Garden State Parkway and the New Jersey Turnpike, said that they'll no longer be taking cash for tolls, but will instead switch to all-electronic toll collection.
If you're already an E-ZPass user, nothing will change.
If you don't have E-ZPass though, the toll plaza's automated cameras will snap a photo of your license plate and you'll get a bill in the mail.
Here's the full announcement from the Turnpike Authority:
