North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) regulars, take note: You'll have to shell out more in toll fees starting May 18.

The Toll Regulatory Board (TRB) authorized the NLEX Corporation to implement a two-to-three-percent toll increase on the thoroughfare.

The toll increase will take effect at 12:01 a.m. tomorrow. Class 1 vehicles will have to pay PHP2 more in the open system (flat rate is charged per entry), VAT included, and PHP6 more to use NLEX from end to end. Class 2 and 3 vehicles must pay an additional PHP3 and PHP4 in the open system, respectively, and PHP14 and PHP16 for end-to-end travel.

In a statement, the NLEX Corporation explained that this toll increase is actually several years in the making, as it is part of approved adjustments that were due in 2012 and 2014.

"TRB and NLEX agreed to implement the increase on a staggered basis to cushion the impact of the adjustments," the statement reads, adding that the company is continually improving NLEX to provide motorists with a safer and more seamless expressway experience up north.
