EYEWITNESS NEWS (WBRE/WYOU) — Once again, you will pay more to drive on the Pennsylvania Turnpike.
The Turnpike Commission approved a six percent increase in June starting January 3rd, for EZ-Pass users. For drivers without passes in the ‘Toll by Plate’ program will see a hefty 45 percent surcharge.
Six locations which served as cashless system pilots will not see the hike, as increases were in place, including the Clarks Summit exit on the I-476 Northeast extension.
Cash payments were suspended and made permanent early on in the pandemic.
