Turnpike Launches Online Survey About E-Z Pass

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

    Occasional users of the PATP don’t like the $6.00 monthly fee for the transponder. Maybe if you lower that fee more people would use the EZ Pass. Also it is an invasion of privacy to track people and keep that info on file for some reason.
