Toll increase for Pa. Turnpike. Tamala Edwards reports during Action News Mornings on January 7, 2019.

Tolls for the Pennsylvania Turnpike went up this past weekend.

For the 11th year in a row, tolls went up 6 percent.

At 12:01 a.m. Sunday, the most-common toll for a passenger vehicle increased a dime for E-ZPass customers from $1.30 to $1.40 and 20 cents for cash customers from $2.10 to $2.30.

If you were to travel the entire length of the turnpike, from Neshaminy Falls to Warrendale, it would cost you $50.40.

"The toll increase - like others since 2009 - is required to meet the PA Turnpike's legislatively mandated funding obligation to support the Commonwealth's public-transportation systems as well as to maintain and improve the 552-mile Turnpike," the PA Turnpike Commission said in a statement.
