HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – 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 E-ZPass are still the preferred methods of payment, but with fewer people today carrying cash, this gives drivers another option.
