The agreement will allow customers to use cash to pay their Toll By Plate bills or add funds to their EZPass accounts at more than 70,000 locations nationwide.
HARRISBURG, Pennsylvania – The PA Turnpike Commission announced a new partnership with cash payment network KUBRA that will allow customers to use cash to pay their toll plate bills or add funds to their EZPass accounts in more than 70,000 locations across the country.
Customers who wish to pay in cash can select the “pay” option when accessing their account online or through the PA TOLL PAY app, the Turnpike Commission said in a press release on Monday. A list of participating retailers near the customer’s location will be displayed. The customer must generate a payslip – which includes a $1.50 service fee – before stopping at any of the outlets to make a cash PA Turnpike toll payment.
“We’re excited to offer our customers another way to pay,” said PA Turnpike CEO Mark Compton. “This new KUBRA option offers anyone wishing to take the PA Turnpike a way to pay cash tolls at a nearby retailer.
“Many travelers already visit these local pharmacies, convenience stores, or discount stores, and now they can pay a PA Toll By Plate bill or replenish their E-ZPass accounts during their stay.”
Adding this payment option will help customers who don’t have a bank account or don’t want to tie up funds in an E-ZPass account until their trip, Compton said.
The PA Turnpike Commission’s partnership with the KUBRA cash payment network allows Turnpike customers to visit all participating retailers in their network.
Most KUBRA network retailers are in Pennsylvania, but PA Turnpike customers can pay anywhere in the United States.

Last year, the PA Turnpike launched its PA TOLL PAY app which allows Toll By Plate customers to pay their bills. With the app, Toll By Plate customers can also sign up for AutoPay to get a 15% discount on their bill.
The PA Toll Pay app allows E-ZPass and Toll By Plate customers to easily update and manage their accounts and review account activity.
“We will continue to look to expand options to make payment more convenient for customers,” Compton said. “We are exploring other payment methods that will allow travelers to pay virtually according to their preferences.”
