Drivers who travel on the Pennsylvania Turnpike can expect to pay even higher rates starting next year, according to a staff report from 6abc.

The Turnpike Commission voted earlier this week to approve a five percent toll increase for both E-ZPass and Toll by Plate customers. The new rates will take effect on January 8, 2023, across the toll-highway system.

E-Z pass customers will see the common toll go up from $1.70 to $1.80, while Toll by Plate customers will see a bump from $4.10 to $4.40.

The Commission said the increase in rates was necessary to be able to meet their financial obligations.

“The PTC has been forced to increase tolls annually through the foreseeable future to meet its financial obligations under Act 44 of 2007,” said Mark Compton, CEO of the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission.

He added that it is “worth noting that, even with these ongoing annual increases, our per-mile toll rate continues to be below the midline compared with rates of other U.S. tolling agencies.”
