The turnpike will see increase tolls for the ninth year in a row and most likely each year until 2044 according to Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission. The 6 percent hike will raise the cost of a trip from Ohio to New Jersey to $51.85 and $37 for E-ZPass users. Part of the reason is the turnpike’s obligation to pay PennDOT $450 million a year under a 2007 state law, earmarked for public transit, but cutting back to $50 million in 2023.
