Troubled PA Turnpike Authority Hikes Tolls, Again

HARRISBURG — Drivers, get ready to pay more on the Pennsylvania Turnpike next year: tolls are going up for the sixth consecutive year.

Starting Jan. 5, cash tolls will jump by 12 percent, and E-ZPass tolls will increase 2 percent.

A typical passenger vehicle will pay $3.55 to $4 in cash for a mid-length trip, such as from the Lehigh Valley exit to the Poconos. Using an E-ZPass, the same trip would cost $2.71 to $2.77.
