The Emergency Travel Program was created by the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission to expedite vehicle movements across the Pennsylvania Turnpike for a declared emergency or disaster response event. It was designed for Emergency Response Vehicles (ERV) and Essential Service Provider Vehicles (ESPV).

This program was designed to be used by all vehicles – those with E-ZPass and those without!
