Payment Options

You no longer have to stop at Toll Points. As you drive through a Toll Point with an E‑ZPass transponder, an antenna captures your trip information, calculates the toll, and deducts the cost from your pre-paid account balance. If you don't have a transponder, a camera will capture your license plate, and your bill will be mailed to the vehicle's owner.

E-ZPass

Using E-ZPass is the simplest and cheapest way to travel on the PA Turnpike. Plus you could save nearly 60% on tolls by traveling with E-ZPass.

We'll capture your license plate as you drive and send an invoice to the car's registered owner.

Driving Towards Success

Our mission is to operate a safe, reliable, customer-valued toll road system that supports national mobility and commerce. To make this a reality, we adopted historic levels of Capital Plan Investment – $6.52 billion over ten years. This investment has enabled the completion of over 100 miles of total reconstruction of our system to date, and we anticipate the completion of over 150 miles of additional total reconstruction projects within the next decade.

The direct impact to our customers will be a better ride and better mobility. This reconstruction will enable future maintenance to occur with minimal disruption, while also having a positive economic impact on our community: Pennsylvania.
