More on Ohio Pike’s AET Customer Survey and Toll Collection System Investment

The Blade (Toledo) reports, “It’s been less than a decade since the Ohio Turnpike spent $50 million overhauling its toll-collection system, but it’s already looking toward the next upgrade. As part of planning for that project, the turnpike posted an online survey that, in large part, asks people whether they use electronic toll payment and whether they’d support a toll increase if gates were to be removed at toll plazas to allow faster vehicle processing.” [Link added.] The report adds, “Introducing some form of open-road tolling now is under consideration, although Brian Newbacher, a turnpike spokesman, said that would not necessarily require higher tolls.”
