No more cash at toll gates?

Cars & TransportationHi Don: Read the Guide every day. No cash booths at Toll Gates on expressways? How will tourists and Expats get through the toll gates without a card? Will we have to go into the city somewhere to buy a card to use once or twice a year? I wonder if they have thought this through? It would really be a bad thing for tourists. Thanks for any info you may have. Cliff

Editor's Comment: Yeah, that's what I'm hearing as well. And you're right, they're going to have to keep at least one lane open for those who want to pay cash, eventually. But right now they are trying to say it's going to be 100% electronic swipe cards, mandatory. As usual, they tend to just shoot from the hip and then adjust fire when they miss. It hasn't been done yet, so we can relax for now.

Now if they would just link the fast pass from The Southern Corridor to the Northern corridor....Would be nice to just have one system.

Yea, I threw my prepaid card in the trash a long time ago, I could have sworn I was not correctly debited on my card a few times.
I dont know, I really dont know, I pay cash now.
