It has been a rough winter and 7News is giving commuters a lift over the next few days.

7News took over the cash lanes at the Allston-Brighton toll on the Mass Pike Monday morning, giving drivers a free ride into Boston. 7News’ Kris Anderson was on hand to wave everyone through and wish them a happy Monday.

For more than an hour, more than 700 drivers passed through the toll and 7News picked up the tab for all of them.

“You guys are awesome, thank you very much!” said one happy driver.
