HARRISBURG, Pa. (CBS) - Operators of the Pennsylvania Turnpike are seeking input from those motorists who are still paying cash to use the toll road.
As part of a yearlong feasibility study of switching to an all-electronic toll system, spokesman Carl DeFebo says the Pennsylvania Turnpike has launched an online survey of cash-paying customers.
“We just want to get their general travelling habits. We certainly want to find out why they don’t have EZ Pass, and what type of incentive would encourage them to get it,” DeFebo tells KYW Newsradio.
The turnpike had previously announced its study of possibly switching to a cashless toll system. But if that were to happen, folks without EZ Pass would still be able to use the turnpike: photos of their license plates would be taken and they would get a bill.
The results of the feasibility study are expected early next year.

The survey ends two weeks from Monday.
