The Pennsylvania Turnpike: Safety Focused, Customer Driven

The PA Turnpike has been the leader in transportation from the day we opened, decades before the concept of interstate travel was established in this country. To honor that legacy, we continue to be an organization that isn’t afraid to re-invent how we do business, transform who we are to our customers and reimagine our place in the communities we connect. Continuous improvement is a given; it’s the lowest bar we can meet. Modernization and innovation are not the exceptions here, they are the norm and foundation for our decision-making.

About the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission

The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission (PTC) is guided by our Board of Commissioners and a dedicated workforce responsible for improving, operating and maintaining more than 550 miles of roadway statewide as well as numerous facilities and service plazas across our footprint. Our workforce is unified through one mission; to operate a safe, reliable, customer-valued toll road system that supports national mobility and commerce. We care deeply about safety and customer service. We recognize that teamwork and communication are essential to operating a highway system that more than 500,000 customers rely upon daily. We take our responsibility seriously and take great pride in our accomplishments on the job.

Our Mission

Through a series of workshops and meetings, an advisory team reviewed the previous strategic plan and identified updates necessary to meet the PTC’s new vision for the next five years and to reflect what our employees expressed in the first-ever survey of our entire workforce. Through this process, a new framework for the plan was developed with a focus on five core values, four commitments, and supporting goals and objectives.

America's First Superhighway

The PA Turnpike was the first of its kind and received nationwide acclaim as an engineering marvel when it opened on October 1, 1940. As America's first superhighway, it became and was the national standard for superhighway design and engineering. Today, the PA Turnpike stretches more than 550 miles – triple its original length. It continues its legacy of innovation in the ground-transportation industry and embraces modern-day technologies for faster response times, increased traffic flow, and safer trips for drivers.
