In cooperation with the Toll Regulatory Board (TRB), Cavitex Infrastructure (CIC) and its joint venture partner, Philippine Reclamation Authority (PRA) implemented the new toll rates for CAVITEX R-1 segment last May 22, 2022.
The supposed implementation in Paranaque Toll Plaza last May 12 was deferred to provide more time for the registration of PUV drivers and operators to the toll reprieve program which allows them to continue to enjoy the old toll rates of Php 25 for Class 1, Php 50 for Class 2 through a rebate program.
The toll reprieve program is system driven via the RFID, so all the PUVs operators and drivers have to do is enroll their account to the program in coordination with their different transport organizations. The program will run for 90 days starting on Day 1 of the implementation of the new toll rates.
Toll Regulatory Board expressed gratitude to CIC and its JV partner PRA for their cooperation and support to the mass transport groups. Target enrollees to the program are all drivers and operators of the 1,420 public utility vehicles that ply through CAVITEX.
The new rates are inclusive of the 2011 and 2014 periodic toll petitions, and add-on toll petition for enhancement works done in the expressway, which includes bridge lane widening works. The following are the new rates.
