The Bengaluru-Mysuru expressway toll will be revised from April 1.

RAMANAGARA: In a rude shock for motorists, the toll for the Bengaluru-Mysuru expressway is being increased with effect from April 1, 2023. This comes just 17 days after the expressway was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi amid much fanfare.

The toll will go up by as much as 22 per cent as per the National Highways Fee (Determination of Rates and Collection), Rules, 2008.

The revised toll will be as under:

  • Car/Jeep/Van: Single trip — Rs 165 (Rs 30 increase); Two-way trip — Rs 250 (Rs 45 increase).
  • Light Motor Vehicle/Mini Bus: Single trip — Rs 270 (Rs 50 increase); Two-way trip — Rs 405 (Rs 75 increase).
  • Truck/Bus/Two-axle Vehicle: Single trip — Rs 565 (Rs 165 increase); Two-way trip — Rs 850 (Rs 165 increase).
