On Our Roadway

Cashless Tolling

  • Under cashless tolling, all motorists benefit from the convenience of nonstop travel. Tolls are assessed electronically as motorists keep moving at the posted speed. Customers pay using E-ZPass or the PA Turnpike TOLL BY PLATE program. E-ZPass customers will have their toll deducted from their account as usual.
  • Customers without E-ZPass will be mailed a PA Turnpike TOLL BY PLATE invoice. Cameras will take a picture of the vehicle’s license plate and the registered owner will receive the invoice by mail.
  • So far, the PA Turnpike has implemented cashless tolling at the Delaware River Bridge, Keyser Avenue/Clarks Summit, Findlay Connector and Beaver Valley Expressway. In October of 2019, the Gateway Toll Plaza and PA Turnpike 66 convert to cashless tolling. In 2022 the rest of the PA Turnpike will be converted to cashless tolling.

Mileposts

  • Milepost markers, also just known as mileposts, can be a very useful tool for motorists. Located every 10th of a mile, a milepost indicates your exact location. At the beginning of a mile, a milepost will also include the direction and interstate number that you are traveling on.
  • If you need assistance, be aware of the milepost marker nearest to you to let responders know of your location.

Understanding our exits and ramps

  • With close to 70 interchanges on the PA Turnpike, customers have a number of options for how they can exit and enter the highway. Most interchanges do allow motorists to enter or exit traditionally by passing through a tollbooth and using a cash or E-ZPass lane.
  • However, there are four E-ZPass Only interchanges, and two E-ZPass only ramps on the PA Turnpike. These locations only accept E-ZPass transactions. That means you will need an active E-ZPass transponder as there are no toll booths or collectors available to take a cash payment. If you do not have an E-ZPass transponder and you take these ramps or interchanges you will be issued a violation. Learn more about the locations and how to use these interchanges here.
  • Will you be traveling with a GPS? Except for Waze, a GPS does not know the difference between regular and E-ZPass only lanes and exits. If you do not have an E-ZPass and are using a GPS always defer to signage to ensure you don’t use an E-ZPass only lane or exit. When following a GPS ALWAYS read and be aware of signage.

Signs along the roadway

  • When entering or exiting the PA Turnpike through a toll plaza, you will notice two options, “No Cash” or “Cash Only.” No cash lanes are strictly for E-ZPass tagholders only. If you use a no cash lane without an E-ZPass you will be issued a violation. Whether you are paying with cash or a credit card, all non-E-ZPass customers should use a cash only lane.
