    New York state officials say cashless tolling will begin by the end of this year at the Thruway Authority's toll barriers in the lower Hudson Valley.

    Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo says Thruway Authority Acting Executive Director Matthew Driscoll made the announcement Tuesday during the agency's board of directors meeting in Albany.

    Cuomo announced earlier this year that the entire 570-mile Thruway system will be converted to cashless tolling by the end of 2020.

    Cashless tolling was first introduced in 2016 at the Tappan Zee Bridge, later renamed the Gov. Mario M. Cuomo Bridge. It was followed earlier this year by the Grand Island Bridge near Buffalo.
