PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Hoping to find out why more drivers aren’t using its automated E-Z Pass system, the Pennsylvania Turnpike has launched an online survey for drivers to weigh in.

Last month, the Turnpike Commission announced that it would raise cash fares by 10-percent next year. Drivers who use E-Z Pass, however, would not have to pay the increase.

Nearly two-thirds of Turnpike travelers already use E-Z Pass, but some still appear to be resistant to the system — opting to pay cash tolls instead.

The survey, which will be open until August 22, is part of a wider study meant to examine the overall cost and benefits of implementing all-electronic tolls.

Anyone interested in taking the survey can do so by logging on to www.paturnpike.com/aet_public/aet.asp
