Commission OKs another boost in Pa. Turnpike tolls

HARRISBURG — Tolls on the Pennsylvania Turnpike are going up for the seventh straight year.

The turnpike commission Tuesday approved a 5 percent increase that will take effect in January.

Officials say the increase will be applied evenly to cash and electronic E-ZPass tolls – marking the first time in three years that cash tolls are not subject to a steeper increase.

About three out of four turnpike drivers now use E-ZPass.

The new rates will nudge the cost of the most common toll for passenger vehicles by a nickel to $1.09 for E-ZPass users and by a dime to $1.70 for cash customers.

The most common toll for tractor-trailers will increase from $8.62 to $9.05 for EZPass users and from $12.15 to $12.80 for cash customers.
