PA turnpike tolls increased 6% on January 5, 2020

According to the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission, tolls increased 6%  as of January 5, 2020.

The most common toll for a passenger vehicle will increase from $1.40 to $1.50 for E-ZPass customers and from $2.30 to $2.50 for cash customers. Class-5 tractor-trailers will see an increase from $3.70 to $4.00 for E-ZPass holders and from $16.30 to $17.30 for cash.

The increase in tolls will support the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission’s 10-year plan to preserve the turnpike, said the commission’s CEO, Mark Compton in a press release.

Turnpike tolls have seen an increase since 2009, said the commission, and over 140 miles have been reconstructed.
