The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission (PTC) is reminding motorists of a toll increase for 2018.  Tolls reflecting a six-percent increase for both cash and E-ZPass customers went into effect yesterday.  The increase is needed to meet the PTC’s funding and capital-improvement obligations. Additionally, the Commission is legislatively mandated to offer $450 million in supplemental funding to PennDOT each year.  The PTC has provided payments to PennDOT totaling more than $5.8 billion. A portion of those funds provides financial assistance to the Commonwealth’s mass-transit agencies and helps to fund off-Turnpike highway and bridge construction.
