CCLEX is now officially the first tollway in the PH to allow small bikes

Back in June, when the management of the newly-built Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX) announced that sub-400cc motorcycles will be allowed the use of the tollway starting July 2, 2022, the motorcycle community was once again divided.

On one hand, a lot of riders were happy that finally, an expressway operator has agreed to let motorcycles with engine displacements as little as 125cc enjoy the convenience and safety of a tollway.

On the other hand, there were those who claim that such a move could be risky for small bikes, especially when high winds could easily topple a light motorcycle off of its balance (though there is currently no scientific study or evidence to prove this claim).

On Saturday, July 2, 2022, history was made when CCLEX became the first-ever expressway/tollway to allow entry of sub-400cc motorcycles officially. The toll fee is discounted for Class 1M at PHP 60.00, one way.

“Motorcycles were allowed on the Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX) for the first time today, July 2. Motorcycles have their own lane, marked by a blue line, and toll booth, located at the right side of both the Cebu City-bound and Cordova-bound lanes at the toll plaza,” said CCLEX in a statement.

Moreover, motorists are also encouraged to download the MPT DriveHub via Google Plays or Apple App Store for a more convenient CCLEX experience. With the app, motorists can conveniently reload their CCLEX RFID via debit or credit card, Maya, and other loading services.

Motorists can also reload their CCLEX RFID at the CCLEX Customer Service Centers (CSC) near the toll plaza.

CCLEX is operated by CCLEC, which is a subsidiary of Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation (MPTC). MPTC also operates the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX), Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX), CAVITEX, C5 Link, and the Cavite-Laguna Expressway (CALAX).
