The Cavite Laguna Expressway (CALAX) will soon be charging toll fees. The 10-kilometer section that serves as a convenient alternative route to and from Binan and Santa Rosa in Laguna, and Tagaytay and Silang in Cavite was free of toll since it opened in October 31, 2019.
However, the operators of CALAX have finally received the Toll Regulatory Board’s (TRB) approval to now charge fees. They will be as follows: Php 47.00 for Class 1 vehicles, Php 95.00 for Class 2 vehicles, and Php 143.00 for Class 3 vehicles. Like all expressways, only motorcycles 400cc and above will be allowed to enter. They will be categorized as Class 1 and pay the indicated fee.
Toll fees will be collected starting today, February 10, 2020, Monday. CALAX operators say that toll fees will only be collected upon compliance with TRB requirements. If the requirements are not complete, they will not be charging motorists for use of the expressway on February 10. Keep your eyes peeled for signs and announcements before entering.
Currently, only the first 10-kilometers of the CALAX is open to motorists. Since it was opened, it has served its daily target volume of 6,000 vehicles. Once complete, the 4-lane expressway that starts at CAVITEX in Kawit, Cavite will exit near the SLEX-Mamplasan Interchange in Laguna. There will also be a total of eight interchanges along the expressway.
