MANILA, Philippines — Motorists using the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) will experience higher toll fees beginning June 4, following the approval of the second tranche of toll adjustments by the Toll Regulatory Board (TRB). This increase affects various segments of the expressway, impacting different vehicle classes.

According to NLEX Corporation, the new toll matrix indicates the following adjustments for the open system, which covers areas from Balintawak, Caloocan/Mindanao Avenue to north of Marilao:

  • Class 1 vehicles (regular cars and SUVs): additional ?5
  • Class 2 vehicles (buses and small trucks): additional ?14
  • Class 3 vehicles (large trucks and trailers): additional ?17

For the closed system, which extends from north of Marilao to Sta. Ines:

  • Class 1 vehicles: additional ?21
  • Class 2 vehicles: additional ?54
  • Class 3 vehicles: additional ?65

In the Subic-Tipo segment:

  • Class 1 vehicles: additional ?2
  • Class 2 vehicles: additional ?7
  • Class 3 vehicles: additional ?8

Motorists traveling end-to-end from Metro Manila to Mabalacat City will see the following increases:

  • Class 1 vehicles: additional ?27
  • Class 2 vehicles: additional ?68
  • Class 3 vehicles: additional ?81

The toll hike is part of the periodic adjustments approved for 2018 and 2020, but their implementation was postponed and divided into two phases to mitigate inflationary pressures. The first tranche was introduced on May 25, 2023. The current hike marks the implementation of the second and final tranche, as confirmed by a TRB notice issued on May 14, 2024, and subsequent notification from NLEX Corp. on May 22, 2024.




This increase follows regulatory procedures, including the publication of adjustments and posting of a surety bond, ensuring compliance with Section 1, Rule 5 of the TRB Revised Rules of Procedure.

Additionally, the TRB is considering toll hike proposals for other expressways, including the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) and the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX). However, TRB Executive Director Alvin Carullo emphasized that the board is mindful of the current inflationary situation and may delay further increases to mitigate economic impacts.

Motorists should prepare for these changes and adjust their travel budgets accordingly as the new rates come into effect on June 4.
