New Hampshire Toll Roads Not Making Change for Cash-Paying Drivers Because of Coronavirus Pandemic

March 31, 2020

New Hampshire is changing the way it does toll roads as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation announced Monday, March 30 that it will no longer make change for drivers who use the cash lane, as NECN reports.

Rather, those lanes will be “Exact Change Toll Fare Only” for the time being. Additionally, because of the reduced traffic flow, the cash lane will have reduced hours; it will only be staffed from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. each day.

From 9 p.m. to 5 p.m., every lane will operate as a “no cash collection.”

For those who do not have cash on them, drives can drive through the EZ-Pass lane and pay by plate — the default option for those without an EZ-Pass in Massachusetts.

So far, Maine, another state which still offers toll road drivers a cash option, has not followed suit. Drivers can still get change in Maine, for now.
