“Tariff adjustments are valid on October 23, some are up and down,” said Head of Kanci-Pejagan Toll Collection Section, Uum Jumaedi in Cirebon, Wednesday.
He explained, as quoted by Antara, initially the toll entrance fee was in accordance with the existing class of vehicles. And currently there are only three tariffs for five classes of vehicles.
Where vehicle class I, the current tariff is Rp. 29 thousand, which was originally only Rp. 24,000. Then for class II and III vehicles combined with a tariff of Rp.43,500.
“Before being merged, class II vehicle costs Rp. 36 thousand and for III Rp. 48,000, there is also a decrease,” he said.
