Higher PA Turnpike Tolls Start Jan. 6

Drivers on the Pennsylvania Turnpike will have to pay higher tolls in 2013

Higher PA Turnpike Tolls Start Jan. 6

Pennsylvania Turnpike tolls will be higher in 2013 as the result of an increase approved by the turnpike commission:

  • 10 percent more for cash customers
  • 2 percent more for E-Z Pass customers
  • New rates start January 6

The last time tolls went up was January 2011.

The commission says the change will hike toll revenue 3 percent to fulfill a $450 million funding obligation to the state.

More changes are in the works as turnpike officials consider the possibility of eliminating toll plazas and cash payments.
