HARRISBURG (AP) – It now costs more to ride on the PA Turnpike. In July, the PA Turnpike Commission approved a 6% increase which began yesterday for EZ-Pass users as well for those without passes in the “Toll by Plate” program. They also approved a 45% surcharge on people whose tolls are assessed by mail based on their license plates. Under the Toll by Plate option, high-speed cameras capture license-plate images as vehicles pass by. The registered owner then receives an invoice for trips made through the tolling point.
