ITR Toll Rates Set to Climb in 2017 as State Subsidy for Transponder Users Ends

WNDU reports, “Rates on the Indiana Toll Road could more than double for some 80,000 users come 2017. The end of 2016 will mark the end of a state subsidy program that held down the costs of toll road travel for some customers for the past 10 and a half years. Users of the electronic transponder E-ZPass are today charged about half as much as a cash customer would be for the same trip. Up until now, the other half has been paid by the State of Indiana directly to the toll road operator. It is that subsidy program that is about to abruptly end.”
