Modern public utility jeepneys (PUJ) will bring passengers to and from Mactan Island to the Sinulog Grand Parade venue at the South Road Properties via the Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX) on Sunday.
This is the first time that PUJs will pass the CCLEX. Only modern PUJs with special permits will be allowed to pass the expressway.
Modern PUJs will also be charged a discounted toll from the regular fee for Class 2 vehicles of P180 to only P120.
“We are happy to announce that local government units and the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) have allowed some modern PUJs to use the CCLEX to help devotees cross to the SRP to watch the grand parade,” said Allan G. Alfon. President and General Manager of the Cebu Cordova Link Expressway Corporation.
“This is a preview of what will happen in the future because there is a pending request for public utility vehicles to be allowed to use the CCLEX,” Alfon added.
The routes for the modern PUJs are:
- Looc -Babag to SRP via CCLEX and vice versa.
- The Mactan Newtown to SM Seaside to Plaza Independencia via Marigondon Crossing – CCLEX and vice versa.
The fare is P14 for the first 4 kilometers and P2.20 for every succeeding kilometer.
The CCLEX will remain open to all motorists, pedestrians, and bikers during the Sinulog Grand Parade. CCLEX’s pedestrian and bike lanes are open from 5AM to 5PM, with a cut-off time of 3:30PM.
Motorists are encouraged to reload their CCLEX RFID for a seamless and convenient expressway experience. They can reload using the MPT DriveHub app or via the CCLEX Customer Service Centers near the toll plaza, or EC Pay.
