E-ZPass Only Interchanges

E-Zpass Only Interchanges

The PA Turnpike currently operates four E-ZPass Only interchanges, and two E-ZPass only ramps at full service interchanges. These locations only accept E-ZPass transactions. PA Turnpike Toll by Plate is not accepted at these locations. Additionally, there is no toll booth or collector available to take a cash payment. Therefore, if you do not have an E-ZPass transponder and you take these ramps you will be issued a violation.

When you are approaching an E-ZPass Only interchange you will see multiple, large signs indicating that this exit is for E-ZPass customers only. Your GPS will not differentiate these ramps from traditional, full service interchanges so please always pay attention to roadway signage in addition to any GPS directions you may be using for navigational purposes.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

  • You must have an E-ZPass transponder in order to get on and off the PA Turnpike using an E-ZPass Only interchange.
  • Traditional tollbooths and toll collectors are not available to receive cash payments at these locations.
  • The PA Turnpike Toll by Plate payment program IS NOT AVAILABLE at these locations.
  • If you are NOT an E-ZPass customer and you exit the PA Turnpike at an E-ZPass Only interchange keep your entry ticket and follow these steps. Once you receive your violation, you can submit payment for the toll along with the ticket and the notice. If you do not know the toll amount, please contact the Customer Assistance Center at 1.800.331.3414.
  • If you are NOT an E-ZPass customer and you enter the PA Turnpike at an E-ZPass Only interchange you will be subject to pay the toll from the furthest entry point when you exit.

E-ZPass Only FAQs

I accidentally used an E-ZPass Only Interchange, but don't have E-ZPass. What do I do?

If you exited at an E-ZPass Only interchange, keep your entry ticket. You'll receive a violation in the mail. See toll payment instructions for more information. If you entered at an E-ZPass Only interchange, use a cash lane to exit at your desired exit and you will be subject to pay the toll from the furthest entry point. If you are using a rental vehicle, please contact the rental company about their tolling policy. See our Rental Vehicles page for more information.


Why does the PA Turnpike have E-ZPass Only interchanges?

E-ZPass Only interchanges have several benefits over traditional toll plazas. These interchanges cost significantly less than interchanges with traditional cash tollbooths, have less impact on the environment, require less property to build, and in general, offer more flexibility in terms of the location of new interchanges on the Turnpike. Most E-ZPass Only interchanges were constructed at the request of local municipalities and the only financially feasible way for the Pa Turnpike Commission to honor those requests were E-ZPass only interchanges.
