Turnpike Tolls Going Up

Member Group : Media Reports

Pennsylvania Turnpike tolls are scheduled to go up 6 percent early next month in what will mark the 10th consecutive year of rate increases along the nation’s oldest superhighway.

When the next round of toll hikes take effect Jan. 7, the commission said the most common toll shelled out by cash-paying customers will be $2.10 – nearly triple what it was a decade earlier. The average toll for E-ZPass customers will be $1.30 – a 73 percent jump from 2008.

The Turnpike Commission said it needs to impose annual toll hikes so it can make annual payments to PennDOT and pay for improvements to its 550-mile network of highways.
