Tolls are going up on the Kansas Turnpike.
The Turnpike Authority announced Monday that beginning Feb. 1 toll rates will be adjusted to pay for future projects, replenish reserves used during the pandemic and entice additional customers to use K-TAG, KTA’s electronic toll collection program.
Those who use an electronic transponder to pay for tolls will see an approximate 2 percent increase for inflation. Customers paying at the toll booths with cash or card will see about a 12 percent increase.
The Kansas Turnpike receives no tax funding and relies on user fees, to pay for operations and maintenance of the roadway.
