The new four-kilometer Muntinlupa Cavite Expressway (MCX) has officially opened today at 1400 hours. In line with this, MCX has introduced the rates of the newly-opened toll road.
The toll fees are as follows:
Class 1 - PhP17.00
Class 2 - PhP34.00
Class 3 - PhP 51.00
The management of MCX also stated that vehicles fitted with E-Pass or RFID can pass through the expressway with ease.
However, MCX stressed that the toll fee collected at the new road will be integrated with the toll fee from one's destination on SLEX/Skyway to Susana Heights.
For example, toll from destination on SLEX/Skyway to Susana Heights is PhP 187. A Class 1 motorist will just have to add PhP17.00 and the total amount would be PhP204.000.
The MCX will serve as an alternate route from Metro Manila to Cavite and vice versa. It will be able to cut travel time by as much as 45 minutes and will also decongest traffic in Cavite, Las Pinas and Muntinlupa City.
The PhP 2 billion roadway is a Publc-private Partnership project of DPWH, with Ayala Corporation as the private proponent.
