Tolls on the Pennsylvania Turnpike will increase 5 percent in 2015, effective Jan. 4.

The decision by the Turnpike Commission Tuesday to hike tolls for the seventh year in a row means the cash toll to drive from the Ohio border to the New Jersey border will be $46.05 for passenger cars, up from the current $43.85.

Drivers using E-ZPass will get a discount of at least 35 percent, the commission said. About 73 percent of turnpike customers use E-ZPass.

Tolls have been rising annually since 2009 to help pay for statewide highway and transit projects, as well as upkeep of the turnpike.
