San Miguel Corp. (SMC) and Metro Pacific Investments Corp. have both declared an eight-hour toll holiday for the Christmas and New Year holidays.
“This year will be no exception. We’re still implementing the toll holiday, although, because of the pandemic, we know we are all asked to minimize contact with others outside our immediate families,” SMC President Ramon S. Ang said in a statement.
SMC operates the South Luzon Expressway, Metro Manila Skyway, NAIA Expressway, Southern Tagalog Arterial Road, and the Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway.
Metro Pacific Tollways Corp., a subsidiary of Metro Pacific Investments Corp., operates the North Luzon Expressway, Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway, Cavite Expressway, and Cavite-Laguna Expressway.
Metro Pacific Tollways President Rodrigo Franco said the toll holiday is a “simple treat” for motorists.
Starting at 10 p.m. on December 24 and up to 6 a.m. of December 25,
both firms will not collect toll fees. The same will be done from 10 p.m. of December 31 to 6 a.m. of January 1. SOVEREIGNPH
