So what happens if you don't have an E-Z Pass? 

The cashless tolls are equipped to take a photograph of your license plate, and send you a bill through the mail - just be sure your address is up-to-date with the DMV.

The project is expected to make travel easier for the 267 million drivers who use the Thruway every year.
