Get Ready—Higher PA Turnpike Tolls Start Jan. 6

Drivers on the Pennsylvania Turnpike will pay higher tolls in 2013.

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.

When will it end? Gas prices, groceries, social security, healthcare costs (deductibles). Way to go "commission" for sticking it to us as well.

It will never end and we are just paying for the folks who live in the upper state who did not want I-80. Toll money is going there while Cranberry has these aweful turnpike bridges on Freedom & Rochester Road.
