Broken down, the increases are as follows: P4.62/km for Class 1, P9.24/km for Class 2, and P13.86/km for Class 3 vehicles. All rates are VAT-inclusive and have been approved by the Toll Regulatory Board (TRB). CIC says this increase comes after the company finished enhancements made to the existing Cavitex road network.

CIC also shared that its joint-venture partner, the Philippine Reclamation Authority (PRA), will work on a rebate program to allow public utility vehicle operators and drivers to enjoy the previous toll rates for the next three months.

NOTE: The toll-fee hike was delayed from May 12 to May 22, 2022. This story has been updated to reflect CIC’s most recent advisory.
