Toll Reference

TOLL CLASSES IN GENERAL

The most important thing to remember when counting axles is that you count ALL axles with wheels touching the ground. If the wheel is on the ground, the axle to which it is connected is counted by the toll agency levying the charges.

The following vehicle types or classes apply for your travel on the Pennsylvania Turnpike. In many cases, the only defining factor for your vehicle class is the number of axles. A guide for all classes and payments for Pennsylvania may be found on the toll payments page.

Remember, when counting axles, make certain to count all axles with wheels touching the ground. Be sure to include axles on any trailers your vehicle may be towing. That is the criteria for determining the total axles on your vehicle.

CLASSES ON THE PENNSYLVANIA TURNPIKE

Pennsylvania's New Vehicle Classes

Pennsylvania is in the process of converting its tolling to a new vehicle classification structure, and eventually the weight class will be eliminated.

The conversion process began on April 29, 2018 at the Clark's Summit Toll Plaza and the Keyser Avenue Toll Plaza, both located at the north end of the Northeast Extension of the Pennsylvania Turnpike. Starting with these barriers, a new axle and height-based system is being tested and implemented.

This new axle and height system is similar to New York, using the same class identifiers as the NYS Thruway. See the insets for reference.

CASH NO LONGER ACCEPTED AT KEYSER AND CLARK

Cash will no longer be accepted at the Keyser Avenue and Clark's Summit Barriers, as Pennsylvania is moving to an open-road tolling system. If you use these barriers and do not have an E-ZPass or compatible toll pass, you will receive an invoice for your tolls.

  • low profile vehicle classes
  • high profile vehicle classes
