And by end of 2014 you better have an E-Z pass or the right change for the toll booths, cause 80 toll booth people will be laid off.

Funny how when they created the Thruway, the tolls were to be only temporary to pay for the creation of it. Here we are, still paying tolls.

anything that has Authority in it is a monopoly and does as it pleases with no checks or balances. Its ridiculous the toll increases over the years. Sorry for layoffs but a monkey could do that job. Water authority keeps increasing as well to name another authority. Everything increases but salaries.
We need to secede from NYC. The entire state is run by democrats in Manhattan in a 12 mile radius. The Truth. Upstate is shit to them but I digress.

I hope that old bat at the Little Falls plaza goes first. She won't hit the E-ZPass button until she's good and ready and she's for a sour face when she does it. Old hag.

I believe the thruway was supposed to become a non toll road in 1993.

Perhaps - but now DESPITE WHAT THEY TELL YOU, it is a huge money maker - not only will we be paying tolls forever - the tolls will forever be increasing.

Without a doubt the state makes revenue from it and its never becoming a non toll road. Why would the state do that? Just like taxes never go down. Once the government has a foothold into your pocket it's all done.

Make it toll free and get rid of all the employees. Turn the maintenace of the road over to the Transporation Dept where it belongs. Close canal and eliminate the whole department, saving all costs associated with it..

Expensive. Poorly maintained. Boring ride. Gestapo troopers.

Great. Keep RIF'ing slug toll takers on the Thruway. Then layoff some troopers.
