Maine Turnpike Toll Increases almost Double for Daily Communters 

The recent toll increase on the Maine Turnpike, is leaving daily commuters with a large bill.That’s because the flat-rate commuter pass is being replaced with a volume-based discount system. Turnpike spokesman Dan Morin says the program is expected to hurt about 2,000 customers.Some daily commuters will see about a $100 increase. Morin says the goal is to make a fair rate for all drivers. The new volume discount is for motorists who use the turnpike more than 70 times a month.
