Stores take cash for toll bills

The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission has partnered with the KUBRA Cash Payment Network, www.KUBRA.com, to provide customers the ability to use cash to pay their Toll By Plate invoices or add funds to their E-ZPass accounts at more than 70,000 retail locations.

Customers who want to pay in cash can select the “pay” option when accessing their account online or via the PA TOLL PAY app. Customers must generate a pay slip — which includes a $1.50 service fee — before stopping at one of the retail locations to make a PA Turnpike toll payment in cash.

Area KUBRA retailers include CVS, Dollar General, Family Dollar, Rutter’s, Sheetz and Walgreens.
