Turnpike chief executive officer Mark Compton told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette last week that ``the goal is to have the system completely cashless by the fall off 2021.''

Toll booths will still be at some exit ramps until 2026 to record E-ZPass signals or photograph license plates so bills can be mailed to drivers.

The jobs of the 600 remaining toll collectors and toll auditors will be eliminated, but officials say they will have the opportunity to move into other turnpike jobs or to take classes at the turnpike's expense.
