The Details

Niagara Thruway

Niagara Thruway, also called Interstate 190, is a highway located in New York. It is owned and maintained by the NY State Thruway Authority. The toll road supports all-electronic tolling – to drive Niagara Thruway, you need an E-ZPass or to register and activate your vehicle with the Uproad app.

Niagara Thruway – overview

The Niagara Thruway is part of Interstate 190 (also known as One-Ninety), a north-south Interstate Highway in the US. Interstate 90 links I-90 in Buffalo, New York, to the Canadian border at Lewiston, New York. Niagara Thruway is the I-190’s section from I-90 north to New York State Route 384. It is also part of the New York State Thruway System. Some people confuse the Niagara Thruway with the Niagara Expressway, but the Niagara Expressway is the toll road from NY 384 to Lewiston. The entire I-190 is 28.34 miles (45.61 km) long. It was built as part of the New York State Thruway in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Since 2018, the route has been all-electronic. It starts at an interchange with the NY State Thruway in Cheektowaga in Erie County, and ends at the approach to the Lewiston-Queenston Bridge – across the bridge, it becomes Highway 405.

Love the app, use it every week
Saved our day when we were on a trip and had to take a toll road on our way home
This App allows us worry-free travel on TOLL ROADS...Automatically replenishing our account, notifying us of Automatically paying our access to the Toll Road. Great relief from expensive citations for not paying while driving. Thank you. P.S. A receipt is always sent to us.
I find this app a good way to track my tolls and manage my budget. Works great for this.
The app saves me a ton extra minutes every day. Took the worry out of paying our tolls. Thank you🌴
Better than a toll tag, I use one app on both vehicles and will link my wife's car next week. Easy to travel to other states, since you're registered with all toll authorities they cover.
Been going back to the office a little so been driving more. This is great.
Great app, awesome way to pay for tolls... thank you!
This app is so easy to use, and I can travel without having to worry about missing tolls.
