The days of the friendly toll taker at Hudson River Crossings linking New Jersey and the U.S. mainland to New York City are soon coming to an end.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey announced late last week. a cashless toll system for the Lincoln Tunnel, Holland Tunnel, and George Washington Bridge

The George Washington Bridge is the world’s busiest motor-vehicle bridge and carries over 100 million vehicles per year.  It is a major travel corridor within the New York metropolitan area.

Over 75% of vehicles using the three crossings already use E-ZPass to pay the toll, the agency said.

The $240 million system will be completely in place by 2021.  Two Port Authority Crossings from New Jersey to Staten Island – the Bayonne Bridge and Outerbridge Crossing – named after Eugenius Harvey Outerbridge, first chairman of the Port of New York Authority – already have cashless toll systems in place and the Goethals Bridge will see a cashless system in place by the end of 2019.
