CAVITEX opens pass-thru lane from Parañaque to Cavite

MANILA: There has been an increase in the number of vehicles passing through the Cavite Expressway (CAVITEX) specially during the night since Metro Manila and its adjacent areas opened for economic activity.

To provide continuous customer service while relieving the traffic congestion during rush hour and evening traffic, one (1) lane for Class 1 vehicles at the Parañaque Toll Plaza southbound (Cavite-bound) has become a “Pass Through” lane from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm during weekdays beginning yesterday, September 17.

Cash-paying motorists of Class 1 vehicles who will use the “Pass Through” lane directed towards Kawit City, Cavite will pay a total fee of P89.00 at the Kawit Toll Plaza.

President and General Manager of CAVITEX concessionaire, Cavitex Infrastructure Corporation (CIC) said, “In addition to this scheme, we have also opened the Pacific Drive entry to Cavitex. This serves as an alternate route wherein vehicles from Roxas Boulevard may enter the D. Macapagal Boulevard onto Pacific Drive to enter the CAVITEX.”

CIC along with its joint venture partner, the Philippine Reclamation Authority (PRA) encourages motorists to avail of the Easytrip RFID (radio frequency identification) before November 2, 2020.

This is in line with the full enforcement of the Department of Transportation’s (DOTr) Order No. 2020-012, wherein contactless and cashless transactions are required for motorists utilizing the tollways to control COVID-19 transmission and improve vehicle passage starting November 2.

Apart from the CAVITEX, the Easytrip RFID can also be used on the CAVITEX C5 Link as well as other toll roads under the Metro Pacific Tollways Group (MPTC), like Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX), the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX), and the Cavite-Laguna Expressway (CALAX).

The Easytrip RFID can be bought and reloaded directly at 24/7 Customer Service Centers along the CAVITEX. Reloading can also be accomplished virtually through ECPay, BDO, PayMaya, and other Easytrip partner-merchants. The first and successive loads are consumable and non-expiring.
