PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - Cash is no longer king on a Pennsylvania Turnpike owned highway.

That's because the Findlay Connector in Robinson Township is now cashless.

In a statement, the Turnpike says customers in this area must pay tolls using E-ZPass or PA Turnpike TOLL BY PLATE.

E-ZPass customers will have their toll deducted from their pre-paid account as usual.

Customers without E-ZPass will receive a PA Turnpike TOLL-BY-PLATE invoice.

“Tolling agencies across the country are introducing cashless systems and we owe it to customers to continue to use the best technology available in every facet of our operations,” said PTC CEO Mark Compton. “At the same time, our system is somewhat unique, and we want to be sure that the technology makes sense for our customers and operations.”

There is some good news, because of the changes, trips between Exits 1-2 and exits 4-6 are now free.

This is the second cashless toll road the Turnpike operates in Western PA, The the Beaver Valley Expressway went cashless last spring.

When completed in early 2020, the next phase of the Southern Beltway from Route 22 in Robinson to I-79 In Cecil will also be cashless.
