The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission this week announced a 10% toll increase for cash-paying customers and a 2% toll increase for E-ZPass users.
The actual rate schedule will be released in the next few weeks on, along with a toll calculator.

The last time tolls were increased for Pennsylvania Turnpike E-ZPass customers was in January 2011, when the commission first introduced the E-ZPass pricing differential.

The increased tolls will generate a 3% increase in toll revenue, the commission says. New revenue from the increase will be allocated to fund debt-service costs associated with the Turnpike Commission's funding obligation to the commonwealth stemming from a 2007 state law known as Act 44.

The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission also selected a program manager to lead the potential implementation of a cashless, All-Electronic Tolling system. The commission voted unanimously to engage HNTB Corp. after a competitive process. The conversion is expected to take at least five years.
