Cashless PA Turnpike on the Way

In two years, you may not need cash on the Pennsylvania Turnpike. The turnpike should be cashless by 2021, according to turnpike CEO Mark Compton. Overhead gantries will be put up over the next six years to bill drivers. Toll booths will remain at some ramps to record E-ZPasses and photograph license plates until 2026. About 600 toll collectors and auditors will lose their jobs when the turnpike goes cashless. State officials say those workers could take other state jobs.
