I was very confusingly charged the full ticket prices the other day on I-276.
I am not from around phili here. I was visiting malvern the other day.
I set out and got on I-76 in around malvern area, don't remember exact which entrance.
And then drove east and it became I-276, and then when I wanted to exit to 309. I saw the toll booth.
And i was charged the full price of over $40.
But I swear I didn't see any toll station to get in and get a ticket.
So what is going on?
I got the claim form. how should I say and will I get some money back?

Do you have EZ-pass? If you got on at Malvern, the Route 29 entrance is EZ-pass only. So if you entered without EZ-pass, and exited without a ticket, you would be charged the full price. They do have a claim form you can fill out for mistakes like this - I'm not sure how reasonable they are but I imagine you have a chance of getting a refund

Thanks, I think that is why happened. But that who designed that system?
that is really difficult for visitors like me who is not familiar and also won't have EZ pass
I have never seem a EZ pass only entrance in the past. There are EZ pass only both entrance and exit like those bridges in NYC. But having one side only and the other side open is a really stupid idea.

Learn to read the road signs. The information is clearly posted at the exit/entry ramps

I agree it's inconvenient for visitors. The turnpike is moving away from toll booths, and moving toward EZ pass only and toll-by-plate (essentially a bill in the mail). All new interchanges are EZ pass only and they just changed the bridge over the Delaware river to be only EZ pass and toll-by-plate. The Route 29 interchange is new within the last decade so that's why that particular entrance doesn't have a ticket/cash option.

If you visit often enough, I'd recommend getting an EZ pass. It's cheaper than paying cash (even with the minimal annual fee of $5 or so) and you won't have to worry about certain entrances and bridges not accepting cash.

I'm not sure you can claim "visitor" status - you live in the Lehigh Valley and most people everywhere in the state use the turnpike. The Northeast extension of the turnpike goes to Allentown. I live just south of you and we have ez pass on all of our cars. We use it when we go to NYC or to New Jersey, besides frequent trips south and west. If you live in Pennsylvania and have a car, you should have an ez pass. https://www.ezpass.csc.paturnpike.co...ages/Main.aspx
