Tolls on São Paulo state highways will increase 11.5% beginning July 1, a spokesperson for state transport agency Artesp told BNamericas.
The increase is in line with the IGP-M inflation index from June 2007 to May 2008.
The adjustment is applied per kilometer on all concessioned state highways, except São Paulo city's beltway Rodoanel, and varies depending on the type of highway.
Starting at midnight, July 1, per kilometer fares on two-lane highways will increase from 0.077 reais (US$0.048) to 0.085 reais. The toll on four-lane highways will rise from 0.107 reais to 0.120 reais.
The most expensive toll will continue to be the Anchieta-Imigrantes stretch, administered by Ecovias, that links the capital to the southern coast. The rate will increase from 15.40 to 17 reais.
Last year, the IGP-M increase was 4.39%.
