No cash? No prob­lem. Penn­syl­va­nia Turn­pike now takes plas­tic

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - NEWS -

HAR­RIS­BURG >> The Penn­syl­va­nia Turn­pike now takes plas­tic.

Philly.com re­ports the turn­pike is now ac­cept­ing credit cards at toll booths across the state.

Penn­syl­va­nia Turn­pike Com­mis­sion spokesman Carl DeFebo says toll col­lec­tors be­gan re­ceiv­ing card read­ers last month.

DeFebo says cash and EZPass are still the pre­ferred meth­ods of pay­ment, but with fewer peo­ple to­day car­ry­ing cash, this gives driv­ers an­other op­tion.

DeFebo calls it “a backup” if you get to the toll booth and don’t have any cash.

He says driv­ers can go through one of the cash lanes to use their credit card.
