Toll rate increase set by CAVITEX
Effective midnight, August 21, 2023, drivers of Class 1 vehicles coming from Cavite going to Baclaran (or Mall of Asia area) via CAVITEX and vice versa will have to pay an extra PHP 2.00. This comes after the Toll Regulatory Board (TRB) recently approved the 2017 periodic toll petition of joint venture partners Cavitex Infrastructure Corporation (CIC) and Philippine Reclamation Authority (PRA), for the toll rate adjustments in the 14-kilometer expressway.
Likewise, those driving Class 1 vehicles from Kawit to Bacoor and vice versa will have to pay an extra PHP 9.00.
According to CIC, Under the Toll Operation Agreement between the TRB, CIC, and PRA, the CAVITEX toll rates are allowed to be periodically adjusted every three (3) years. Exercising their right, CIC and PRA filed their Petition for Approval of Periodic Toll Rate Adjustment for R-1 Expressway (Seaside to Zapote) and R-1 Expressway Extension, Segment 4 (Zapote to Kawit) before the TRB in 2017.
Upon careful consideration and diligent review of the submissions, the TRB issued its Resolution granting the Petition and allowing the implementation of the provisionally approved toll rates.
The new toll rates will be as follows: CAVITEX motorists traveling from MIAA Exit to Longos, Bacoor (and vice versa) would be charged VAT-inclusive rates per vehicle class at the Parañaque Toll Plaza, PHP 35.00 for Class 1, PHP 70.00 for Class 2, and PHP 104.00 for Class 3. Meanwhile, motorists traversing Longos, Bacoor to Kawit (and vice versa) would be charged at the Kawit Toll Plaza PHP 73.00 for Class 1, PHP 146.00 for Class 2, and PHP 219.00 for Class 3.
