RICHMOND, Va. -- Full-service cash collection will resume at tolls in the City of Richmond as a part of Phase 1 of the city’s reopening.

The Richmond Metropolitan Transportation Authority (RMTA) resumed full-service cash collection at 6:30 a.m., Monday, June 1.

That means drivers can again pay tolls to attendants in staffed toll booths.

This comes after the RMTA temporarily closing staffed toll booths on April 3 in response to the Governor’s stay-at-home order. Exact change or E-ZPass were the only payment options available during that time.

Full-service cash lanes will close nightly at 9:00 p.m.

RMTA officials encourage those who use the full-service cash option to wear face masks as they travel through the toll lanes.

“RMTA will continue to take every precaution to safeguard employees and the traveling public from the spread of COVID-19 by ensuring all toll attendants wear masks and gloves, and by following guidelines set forth by the State of Virginia, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and local health officials,” RMTA said in a statement.
