Did i get it right, nlex to buendia is 274.00?
And the minimum toll fee, 110-113?
Naka aircon ba yang buong Skyway Stage 3?
At those rates, only the most high-end vehicles (like those in Ramon Ang's collection) will be seen passing through there.
Hmmm now to ponder if P274 is worth 2hrs of your time hehe.
Not worth it for my diesel car. Hehe. I'll just go back using my usual route going from QC to Makati and back. Haha.
Also saw from a Viber post the same amount. Asking for the source of the info. What's the distance between Makati to Sucat on Skyway cuz the toll is Php 118. Isn't the SS3 (Makati to NLEX) 16 km?
If EDSA traffic stays the way it’s been the past week (McKinley to Crame in 20 minutes) I’m fine taking EDSA.
Same thought, Edsa has been surprisingly light lately. Maybe because a lot are taking the SS3 while it's free.
Edsa will revert back to being bumper to bumper after the free use of ss3 ends, i think
Yeah, I heard also from a colleague that the toll will be 274 pesos (way off the mark on my bet hehe). Though not final, I doubt it will change.
That 274 does not all go to SMC, they still need to pay the concession and other fees. The concession fees alone takes a huge chunk in their revenue. Separate pa diyan yung (legit) TRB fees.
The re-alignment of Section 2 to San Juan river and the re-alignment of the NLEX section I think added a significant amount to the project cost, resulting in higher toll fees.
So... Hello EDSA again?
Mm...tiered toll based on time: charge more during peak hours and charge less for off-peak hours. Motorists can them decide what time to use the skyway. Which means less car will be on the road during peak hours. Which is good for overall traffic. As it is, the 274 per one way from Buendia to Balintawak is bat crazy expensive. It will discourage all but a few regular motorists or high occupancy vehicles (door to door van) or transporting time-sensitive passengers from the north flying through NAIA.
The way I see it government will just force public transport to take the skyway to reduce EDSA traffic passing the buck to the mass commuting public.
even if we assume that only half the amount goes to San Miguel, then at 137 pesos they ROI in 3.8 years. Still not bad at all.
that’s assuming only 200,000 vehicles a day. With the NOLCO and depreciation there’s no way they’ll be paying much, except concession taxes.
This is what I'm afraid of. We will see if it will be back to Edsa Carmageddon on February 1.
At P274 per trip, it comes out to an anuual cost of around P140,000 if I were to take it going to and from work everyday.
I think I'll be taking the Skyway only on special occassions or in emergencies. The locations of the current on and off ramps at Buendia and QA deviate far from my work and home, and they are even more traffic than EDSA, thereby nullifying the time saved from me taking the Skyway. So in my situation, the cost doesn't really justify the convenience.
I am sure though that for a great many others, 150k a year is nothing, especially executives and bosses and deliveries, so at least 10 to 20% of the usual traffic in EDSA may be diverted to SS3. Fingers crossed.
Mm...expensive toll = office or company car pooling.
Or company RFID and fuel expense! Lol
kala ko 4-5 pesos per km lang.
I thought so too. Apparently DPWH Sec Mark Villar didn't know what he was talking about.
The purpose is to decongest edsa, well, looks like it’s not gonna happen
^IMO, if SS3 can give us a faster option from A-B. then it has served its purpose. Toll roads was never meant to compete with free national highways
Gas + Wear and Tear + Stress = PhP 548? -> this will all depend on the car owner
If you take a taxi, would you rather pay for the toll or the taxi meter?
Or if someone was inside an Ambulance to be transferred from Makati to QC... Isn't it nice that we now have SS3 as an option? (I know someone who didn't make the trip)
