Tolls, prices for petrol, parking jump

Commuters may see increases of up to 120 percent at tolls and longer rush hour periods it seems, after Buenos Aires City and the national government lay the groundwork for public hearings to be held in February. Increases could take place immediately after the hearing.

As such, the Acceso Norte and Autopista del Oeste tolls would increase to 55 pesos a trip or 33 pesos if they enter the Telepase frequent user programme. Those highways are run by the national government, whereas City highways such as the 25 de Mayo and Illia could see increases of up to 80 percent. Rush-hour pricing, higher than off-peak hours, will also be extended.

The increases match hikes in petrol and parking in the City, which prompted consumer defence leader Héctor Polino to call them “disproportionate,” particularly considering that the government has tried to argue that inflation in 2017 will be much lower than 2016.
