Any driver that uses a toll road in Pennsylvania is expected to pay the toll for that roadway. In Pennsylvania, the tolls are set by the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission in Harrisburg.
See below for additional information about toll classes and paying violations.
Cameras take a picture of your license tag as you go through a toll booth lane. If a signal is not received from a transponder or you do not have a pre-paid toll-by-plate account, an unpaid toll notice will be mailed at the address of the owner of the vehicle on file with the Pennsylvania Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, in compliance with Pennsylvania Statute. Failure to comply with the unpaid toll notice may result in the issuance of a Uniform Traffic Citation.
As of January 3, 2016, drivers coming into Pennsylvania from New Jersey across the Delaware River Bridge, who do not have an E-ZPass, will be sent a Toll-By-Plate invoice. That invoice will be mailed to the registered owner of the vehicle. Failure to pay the Toll-By-Place invoice may result in the issuance of a Uniform Traffic Citation.
If you receive an Unpaid Toll Notice or a Uniform Traffic Citation in the mail, you may call the Pennsylvania E-ZPass violation processing center at 877-877-5882, and ask to speak to the violations enforcement section. Please have the notice number available.
E-ZPass information also applies to IPass account holders from Illinois.
You also have the option of paying online.
If you are not an E-ZPass or IPass account holder and find yourself in an unattended, dedicated E-ZPass lane, please continue through the toll plaza. Do not stop and back up, as it is unsafe.

This payment system speaks for itself. When you pay by cash or credit card, you are responsible for having sufficient funds in cash or sufficient available credit to pay for your tolls while driving on Pennsylvania's Turnpike.
NOTICE! Credit cards are accepted ONLY at staffed tolling locations. If you are uncertain about whether a toll location is staffed, please make sure to have cash or use a compatible toll pass.
If you are unable to pay your toll, you will receive a ticket/certificate of passage for the amount of the unpaid toll, plus an administrative fine.
Pennsylvania is on the E-ZPass electronic toll collection network. Transponders displaying the E-ZPass or IPass logo will work in Pennsylvania. E-ZPass holders from states other than Pennsylvania, and IPass holders from Illinois, may use E-ZPass lanes.
Pennsylvania is part of the E-ZPass toll network; therefore, you may use an E-ZPass or Illinois IPass on Pennsylvania's Turnpike and all Pennsylvania toll roads.
Make sure you have adequate funds in your E-ZPass account before making your trip; otherwise, you will be assessed a toll violation and fine.
The Pennsylvania Turnpike uses cashless tolling at the Keyser Avenue Toll Plaza and the Clark's Summit Toll Plaza on the Northeast Extension of the PA Turnpike. The barriers were converted on April 29, 2018. The Delaware River Bridge was converted into a cashless tolling system in January 2016.
Travelers coming to Pennsylania from New Jersey will pay a toll at the DRB; if you are leaving Pennsylvania and going into New Jersey, you no longer have to pay a toll for the Delaware River Bridge.
