Driving on the PA Turnpike is about to become a bit more pricey in 2018

Being a Pennsylvania driver is about to become a bit more pricey in 2018.

Another year also means another price hike for Pennsylvania Turnpike users.

Starting January 7, tolls will go up 6 percent. The price hike applies to both those paying cash and those using E-ZPass.

Heading from the Harrisburg East exit to the Valley Forge exit will soon cost E-ZPass users $7.76 and $11.10 for those paying cash.

Heading west from the Harrisburg East exit to Pittsburgh will cost E-ZPass users $18.90 and $26.75 for those who pay cash.

Here are the 2017 rates for comparison:

  • Heading from the Harrisburg East exit to the Valley Forge exit will soon cost E-ZPass users $7.32 and $10.45 for those paying cash.
  • Heading west from the Harrisburg East exit to Pittsburgh will cost E-ZPass users $17.90 and $25.20 for those who pay cash.

But there are a few exceptions, according to PennDOT.

The toll increase will apply to all portions of the PA Turnpike system with these exceptions:

  • there will be no 2018 increase for E-ZPass or Toll-By-Plate customers at the Delaware River Bridge westbound cashless tolling point (#359) in Bucks County;
  • toll rates at the Keyser Avenue (#122) and Clarks Summit (#131) toll plazas on the Northeastern Extension (I-476) in Lackawanna County will not increase until April 2018 as a part of the planned conversion to cashless tolling (rates will be set closer to the conversion date using a new vehicle-classification system); and
  • toll rates at the Findlay Connector (PA Turnpike 576, Allegheny and Washington counties) will not increase until April 2018 as a part of the planned conversion to cashless tolling (rates will be set closer to the conversion date using a new vehicle-classification system)
