Gov’t Agencies, Toll Expressway Concessionaires/Operators roll out Toll Rebate Program for Agri-trucks

Published

The Toll Regulatory Board (TRB), Department of Finance (DOF), Department of Transportation (DOTr), and the Department of Agriculture (DA), in collaboration with the toll expressway concessionaires and operators of CAVITEX, NLEX, SCTEX, MCX and SLEX, officially launched the Agri-Trucks Toll Rebate Program. This program, which will take effect on June 1, 2024, allows DA-accredited truckers transporting agricultural goods/products to receive toll rebates equivalent to the recent enumerated toll increases. 

“This program aims to protect the welfare of the general public by minimizing the impact of toll rate increase on the overall inflationary situation to ensure the stability of food prices. The TRB, together with the different government agencies, acknowledges the toll expressway concessionaires and operators for their full support and cooperation as this will not be possible if they did not agree to implement this exemption,” said TRB Executive Director, Atty. Alvin A. Carullo

To qualify for the toll fee increase exemption, agri-trucks should be duly accredited by the Department of Agriculture (DA) and should have a valid Autosweep and/or Easytrip RFID accounts.

Submitted documents will undergo a verification process within seven (7) working days. Enrollees will be notified of their enrollment status via their registered email addresses. 

Once approved, agri-truckers will enjoy a toll rebate that will be credited to their RFID accounts every Wednesday of the following week. As part of monitoring and to prevent abuse, spot checks will be conducted to ensure enrolled trucks are transporting agricultural goods/products. Non-compliance may result in disqualification from the program. 

The program will initially run for three months, subject to evaluation for possible extension. For queries on the DA accreditation process, agri-truck owners may call the DA Hotline (02) 8920-4072.
