Does Pennsylvania have tolls?
I don’t get along so well with my new brother-in-law—not after he cut the turkey before we arrived for Thanksgiving dinner last year at my sister’s place. I stormed out and swore I’d never talk to the man again. Now they live in Philadelphia (we’re heading to their place from Detroit), and somehow I’m staying at this man’s house for the holidays. Does Pennsylvania have tolls?

Pennsylvania has one toll road—the Pennsylvania Turnpike, also known as the PA Turnpike, or the Penna Turnpike.
Payments for the Pennsylvania Turnpike are all electronic—there are no longer any toll booths, so you can’t pay cash to use the PA Turnpike.
Instead, you’ll be billed electronically either via your E-ZPass, or if you don’t have one, you’ll be billed using Pennsylvania’s Toll By Plate System. Once you enter the Turnpike, this system takes a picture of your license plate as you travel through a toll point. A bill will be mailed to the vehicle’s registered owner within 40 days of any time spent on the Turnpike. You’ll be able to pay the bill by mail, online, or by phone.
Whether you are an E-ZPass holder or not, use this calculator to determine how much you’ll owe once you use the PA Turnpike. Hopefully you’ll get there in time to witness the turkey carving.
