Since the prices went up on the Kansas Turnpike, the toll tickets are smaller. Why is that? And the tickets are printed by a Louisiana company. Isn't there a Kansas company that could do that?
The tickets are smaller because that is the kind produced by the turnpike's new equipment, said Lisa Callahan, director of public relations for the Kansas Turnpike Authority. "There is no question that the type is harder to read," Callahan said, adding that the KTA has received complaints about the tickets. But, she said, the situation was unavoidable. The KTA purchased new equipment because replacement parts for the old equipment were getting more scarce.
As far as the company printing the tickets, Callahan said there is no company in Kansas that prints that kind of ticket.
