First, it was the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) that saw toll-fee increases. Then, it was the Manila-Cavite Expressway. Now, Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation (MPTC) and NLEX Corporation (NLEX) are jacking up the toll fees for the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX).
MPTC has confirmed that the Toll Regulatory Board (TRB) has now approved the proposed toll-fee adjustments for SCTEX. There will be a P0.78/km increase for Class 1 vehicles, a P1.57/km increase for Class 2 vehicles, and a P2.35/km increase for Class 3 vehicles. These will take effect on June 1, 2022.

As for motorists driving from Mabalacat City to Barangay Tipo in Hermosa, Bataan, an additional P49 for Class 1, P98 for Class 2, and P147 for Class 3 vehicles will be charged. NLEX Corporation noted that buses that use SCTEX regularly will be given time to adjust, as PUBs will be able to enjoy the old rates for the next three months.
