Pocahontas 895 ending overnight cash payments at main toll

Overnight commuters who use Pocahontas 895 in Varina no longer will be able to pay tolls at the main toll plaza by cash. Beginning July 31, those who pass through the toll between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m. daily must pay either by E-Z Pass or Visa or Mastercard credit or debit cards.
 
“This is a continuation of our upgrade of our electronic toll collection system,” said Kevin Longenbach, vice president of operations and development for Transurban (895) LLC and manager of Pocahontas 895. “We’re already offering cashless payment convenience at our Laburnum and Airport Connector road ramps. And about half of our customers already pay using E-ZPass.”
 
Longenbach suggested that drivers who don't already use E-Z Pass should consider the switch.

“E-ZPass is the easiest and quickest way to pay a toll on Pocahontas 895,” he said. “Electronic payments are convenient and safe. They eliminate the need to keep cash in the car and reduce distractions as drivers don’t need to search for the correct coin combination.”
 
The automated toll equipment will not accept cash, debit cards that require use of a PIN, or any card other than Visa or Mastercard. Cash will still be accepted at the main toll plaza between 5 a.m. and 11 p.m. daily.
 
Customers who need any assistance with the automated toll equipment can call Pocahontas 895 at 822-3458 (or toll free at 1-866-428-6339). Those telephone numbers are posted on informational signage at all of the automated toll machines.
