Hike in airport road toll from April 1

April 01, 2019 01:49 am | Updated 01:49 am IST - Bengaluru

Those travelling between the city and Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) will have to shell out more for using National Highway 44 as the NHAI has increased the toll collected at Sadahalli plaza to ₹90 for cars — up by ₹5 — for single trip.

The toll for the return journey has gone up from ₹130 to ₹135. The revised fee will come into effect from Monday.

The monthly pass fare for cars has been increased from ₹2,895 to ₹3,020. The monthly pass for local person vehicles will be ₹265.

The toll was revised last year too.

The increased toll will affect both private vehicle users and those who rely on public transport. Buses using the toll road will have to pay ₹280 — up by ₹10 — for a single trip, and ₹420 — up by ₹15 — for return journey, and ₹9,330 for monthly pass. The hike in toll may force Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation, which operates hundreds of buses on the route, including to KIA, to increase fares.

An official of the NHAI said, “It is a routine revision. It was done in the last financial year as well. The revised toll fee will be applicable till March 31, 2020.”
