Pennsylvania Turnpike tolls to increase for 10th straight year in 2018

Updated Jul 24, 2017

For the 10th consecutive year, trucking companies will see increased fees on the Pennsylvania Turnpike in 2018.

The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission approved a 6 percent increase for both E-ZPass and cash customers, which will take effect Jan. 7, 2018. The increase will see the most common toll for a Class 8 truck increase from $23.60 to $25.01 for E-ZPass and from $33.10 to $35.08 for cash.

The annual increases of 3 to 6 percent are expected to continue for the Turnpike through 2044, according to PTC Chairman Sean Logan in 2015.

According to a statement from the turnpike authority, such increases are required to meet the PTC’s various funding obligations, which include supporting PennDOT’s improvements along the 550-mile toll-road system.
