Tolls are the major source of revenue to maintain and operate the Turnpike as well as pay back bondholders who loaned private capital to finance, construct and reconstruct the Turnpike. No tax dollars have ever been used on the Kansas Turnpike. For more information on why tolls are charged on the Kansas Turnpike, visit the IBTTA website. IBTTA is the trade association for bridges, tunnels and turnpikes throughout the world.
