Paying more at the toll: Pennsylvania Turnpike toll increases go into effect

Pennsylvania Turnpike officials are reminding drivers that toll increases went into effect this weekend, along with a hefty surcharge on non- E-ZPass users.
The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission in July approved a 6% increase to begin Sunday for E-ZPass users, as well for those without passes in the “Toll by Plate” program.
They also approved a 45% surcharge on people whose tolls are assessed by mail based on their license plates.
Under the Toll by Plate option, high-speed cameras capture license-plate images as vehicles pass by.
The registered owner then receives an invoice for trips made through the tolling point.
