For Class 1 passenger vehicles, the new rate will be RM2.50, up a full RM1 from RM1.50. Rates for taxis have also increased by RM1 now at RM1.80 from RM0.80 previously, toll rates for buses remain the same at RM1.50.

The highway concessionaire (Prolintas) previously said that AKLEH’s Class 1 rate would be RM3.50, if it were not for subsidies.
