Pennsylvania Turnpike Toll Increase Takes Effect

Posted: Updated:

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Motorists who use the Pennsylvania Turnpike are now seeing higher tolls.
  
A 6 percent increase for cash and E-ZPass took effect Sunday.
  
The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission says the increase, approved by commissioners last July, is needed to meet funding and capital-improvement obligations.
  
The commission also says it is legislatively mandated to offer $450 million in supplemental funding to PennDOT each year.
  
There will be no 2018 increase for E-ZPass or Toll By Plate customers at the Delaware River Bridge westbound cashless tolling point in Bucks County.
