Motorists May Soon Have to Pay to Use Skyway Stage 3


The Toll Regulatory Board or TRB has approved the provisional toll rates submitted by operator San Miguel Corporation for Skyway Stage 3.

The rates for Class 1 vehicles are as follows:
  • Buendia to Sta. Mesa – P 105.00
  • Sta. Mesa to Ramon Magsaysay – P 30.00
  • Ramon Magsaysay to NLEX Balintawak – P 129.00
  • Buendia to NLEX Balintawak – P 264.00
Toll fees for Class 2 vehicles, or buses ,trucks and cars with trailers are:
  • Buendia to Sta. Mesa – P 210.00
  • Sta. Mesa to Ramon Magsaysay – P 60.00
  • Ramon Magsaysay to NLEX Balintawak – 258.00
  • Buendia to NLEX Balintawak – P 528.00
Meanwhile, toll fees for Class 3 vehicles are:
  • Buendia to Sta. Mesa – P 315.00
  • Sta. Mesa to Ramon Magsaysay – P 90.00
  • Ramon Magsaysay to NLEX Balintawak – P 387.00
  • Buendia to NLEX Balintawak – P 792.00
The TRB says that the provisional toll fee matrix will be published once a week for three consecutive weeks in a newspaper of general circulation.

The agency notes though that the approval of the provisional toll rates does not provide the go signal for San Miguel Corporation to immediately start their collections. TRB must issue a Notice to Start Collection.

Before SMC could collect toll charges, the TRB said the Skyway Stage 3 has to be at least 95 percent complete; the project should be able to operate safely and commercially; and the expressway must be equipped with a toll collection system.

SMC earlier said that the Skyway Stage 3 is already 97 percent complete, which the TRB said is now subject to evaluation and validation.
