Pennsylvania Turnpike set to increase tolls again in 2020

PA state line
Another Senate provision would allow under-21 CDL holders to operate trucks interstate, rather than solely intrastate.

Toll prices on the Pennsylvania Turnpike will increase for the 12th consecutive year in 2020.

The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission announced this week a 6% toll increase will take effect on Jan. 5, 2020, for both E-ZPass and cash customers on all sections and extensions of the turnpike except for three western Pennsylvania cashless toll facilities.

The increase will see the most common toll for a Class 8 truck increase to $23.32 for E-ZPass and from $32.65 for cash.

The annual increases of 3% to 6% are expected to continue for the Turnpike through 2044.

A lawsuit against PTC brought by the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association challenging “excessive toll increases” was dismissed earlier this year.
