CHICAGO – Illinois Tollway officials announced Thursday it has ended the collection of cash tolls in Illinois following the outbreak of COVID-19 just over a year ago.
Cash toll collections were suspended last March. All payments online if missed, or via an I-Pass or E-Zpass device. Drivers will have two weeks to pay a missed toll online until they are hit with an additional three-dollar fine.
Before the pandemic, in 2019, less than 10% of all tolls were still paid with cash.
