Turnpike Toll E-PASS

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania Turnpike officials have announced yet another toll increase — 6-percent beginning early next year — as well as a new 45 percent surcharge for non-EZ-Pass users whose tolls are assessed by mail based on their license plates.

Officials said the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission on Tuesday approved a 6 percent increase for EZ-Pass users as well those without passes in the “Toll by Plate” program.

But they also approved an average 45 percent increase over the 2020 cash rate “to reflect the costs of collections for this tolling method.” The new rates are to take effect Jan. 3.
