To reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, all toll operators will be required to wear a face mask and protective shields will be installed at toll booth windows. The DRPA also encourages motorists to wear a face mask as they pass through the cash lanes. 

The DRPA stopped accepting cash for payment on March 26 due to the coronavirus pandemic. Motorists since have been directed to travel through the E-ZPass lanes. A $5 toll is later mailed to the address associated with the driver's license plate.
