    HARRISBURG, Pa. - A six percent toll increase on the Pennsylvania Turnpike will go into effect Sunday for both E-ZPass and cash customers.

    For E-ZPass customers, the most common toll for a passenger vehicle will increase from $1.30 to $1.38. Meanwhile, cash customers will see an increase from $2.10 to $2.25.

    “Since 2009, the PTC has increased tolls annually to make good on a funding obligation required by a 2007 state law known as Act 44,” turnpike CEO Mark Compton said in July. “Under that law, the commission has delivered $6.1 billion in toll-backed funding to PennDOT in the last 11 years.”
