NO CASH ACCEPTED, NO STOPPING AT TOLLBOOTHS ON TURNPIKE “TICKET SYSTEM”
As temporary safety measure during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission (PTC) will no longer accept cash and credit cards on its mainline ticket system beginning March 16 at 8 p.m. All tolls will be assessed electronically via E-ZPass or the PA Turnpike TOLL BY PLATE program as vehicles travel at posted speed limits through tolling points.
With the PA Turnpike TOLL BY PLATE, high-speed cameras capture license-plate images as vehicles pass through. The registered vehicle owner receives an invoice within 30 days for trips made through the tolling point. Invoices can be paid online, by phone or by mail.
