Pennsylvania Turnpike tolls to increase in January

Pennsylvania Turnpike tolls are going up, but at least you’ll have time to plan for it.

Rates for E-ZPass and cash customers will increase six percent effective Jan. 8, under a move approved today by the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission.

Revenues from the increase will fund a newly approved, 10-year spending plan to invest more than $5.77 billion in rebuilding and widening the system over the coming decade, as well as providing funding to the state to help support public transportation.

Under the new rate structure, the most common toll for a passenger vehicle will increase from $1.16 to $1.23 for E-ZPass customers and from $1.80 to $1.95 for cash customers.

The most common toll for a Class-5 vehicle — a prevalent tractor-trailer class — will increase from $9.59 to $10.17 for E-ZPass and from $13.60 to $14.45 for cash.

More than 77 percent of transactions on the 552-mile Turnpike are paid via E-ZPass, officials said.

Meanwhile, toll rates will not increase next year on the Turnpike’s Delaware River Bridge cashless tolling point northeast of Philadelphia.
