Pa. State Senator Plans To Introduce Bill That Would Allow Payment Apps To Be Used On Turnpike

By: KDKA-TV News Staff

HARRISBURG (KDKA) - Could payment apps soon be the way of the future on the Pennsylvania Turnpike?

State Senator Marty Flynn has plans to introduce legislation that would allow drivers to pay turnpike tolls with payment apps such as Venmo and PayPal.

Senator Flynn said that the Pennsylvanians he spoke with are frustrated with the current system of fees being collected through the mail.

He wants to add the apps as a way to have instant invoices sent to phones for payment.

Flynn said this legislation wouldn't get rid of any current options, just add another option.
