For motorists utilizing the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX), there has been a toll fee increase effective since March 21, 2019. It was the Toll Regulatory Board (TRB) who released a statement earlier last month about the increase. However, NLEX Corporation also announced a P1 rollback from the previous announcement. Classes 1, 2, and 3 will all benefit to this said deduction.
For Class 1 vehicles, a P9 increase (counting the rollback) is in effect, bringing the toll fee from P45 to P54 pesos. This increase is applicable to open systems. For end-to-end journeys, the increase will be P21 pesos more than prior rates from P236 to P257. Class 1 vehicles are your private cars and SUVs passing through NLEX.
Flat rate systems operating on a per-entry basis include Balintawak, Mindanao Avenue, Karuhatan, Valenzuela, Caloocan, Meycauayan, and Marilao interchanges and toll plazas. Vehicles that will be using these systems will be charged P54.
For class 2 vehicles, or buses and light trucks, the rate went up by P24; bringing the rate up from P114 to P136 for open systems. For end-to-end transactions, on the other hand, the rate increased by P55 bringing it up from P590 to P645.
Large trucks and trailers, which are categorized as Class 3 vehicles, will pay P164 for open systems. With the previous price of P136, you can do the math and come up with an increase of P28. The new end-to-end price will be P774, up by P66 from the previous price of P708.
As a recall, it was after opening the NLEX Harbor Link Segment 10 when the rates have been scheduled to go up. In addition to that, another reason for this is the “comprehensive review” of petitions to raise the toll fees.
