Tollways offer free Christmas, New Year drives
Toll will not be collected from motorists who will use the at-grade and elevated sections of the Skyway System, South Luzon Expressway (SLEx), and Star Tollway from 10 p.m. on Dec. 24, 2015 to 6 a.m. the following day; and from 10 p.m. on Dec. 31 to 6 a.m. on Jan. 1. 2016.
The management of Skyway O&M Corp., Manila Toll Expressway Systems, Inc., and Star Tollway Corp., the respective operators of the Skyway System, SLEx and Star Tollway, said the toll-free rides would be their simple way of showing appreciation to longtime patrons.
Tollway operators are gearing up for the influx in and out of Metro Manila starting this Dec. 19 to Jan. 4 next year. On SLEx, traffic buildup could occur at Susana Heights, Sta. Rosa, Eton and Calamba in southbound direction; and Carmona, Greenfields, Alabang/Filinvest, both north- and southbound.
