Tolls on the Pennsylvania Turnpike will go up in January.
The PA Turnpike Commission on Tuesday approved a 5 percent toll increase for both E-ZPass and cash customers.
The increase will be effective on Jan. 4, 2015.
The most common toll for a car will go from $1.04 to $1.09 for E-ZPass customers and $1.60 to $1.70 for cash customers, according to figures from the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission.
Turnpike toll increases are necessary for the commission to satisfy the
financial plan outlined under a transportation-funding law enacted seven years
ago," said PA Turnpike CEO Mark Compton.
The 2015 toll increase will be the seventh annual rate increase.
