After nearly seven months of free public use, San Miguel Corporation (SMC) will begin collecting toll fees for Skyway Stage 3 starting July 12. The upcoming toll rates will use a revised matrix that is lower than the previously proposed fees.
For reference, original proposed provisional toll fees are outlined below. These will not be reflected in the revised matrix to be implemented this month.
|Class 1||Class 2||Class 3|
|Buendia to Santa Mesa (Phase 1)||P105||P210||P315|
|Santa Mesa to Ramon Magsaysay||P30||P60||P90|
|Ramon Magsaysay to NLEX Balintawak (Phase 2)||P129||P258||P387|
|Buendia to NLEX Balintawak||P264||P528||P792|
This announcement follows the issuance of a Toll Operating Permit and a Notice to Start Collecting Toll by the Toll Regulatory Board (TRB) for Skyway Stage 3. The final rates will be posted at the toll plazas prior to the start of collection.
SMC president and chief operating officer Ramon S. Ang said that the revised toll matrix, as approved by the TRB, takes into consideration how the pandemic has impacted the economy.
“We thank the TRB for helping us determine the most equitable toll rates for our motorists. We know from experience that times are hard for many, and even a little relief for motorists can go a long way. These toll rates reflect our deferral of the collection of a substantial amount of the cost to build Skyway 3. We also further lowered the rates for those traveling shorter distances.” said Ang.
Ang added that the toll fees will provide his company with enough revenue to ensure continued operational efficiency, maintenance, and safe driving conditions on the elevated expressway.
