PA Turnpike Increase Tolls
The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission is set to increase tolls by 3 percent for E-ZPass users and 10 percent for cash paying motorists. The increase will take effect Jan. 2,2011 and applies to both commercial vehicles and passenger cars. The PTC has increased tolls every year since 2009 as a result of Act 44 of 2007, which requires the Commission to fix and adjust toll rates as needed to meet funding and other financial obligations.
