The increase, blamed on the dollar exchange, affects all classes of vehicles.

According to Globalvia Ruta 27 (the private concessionaire) statistics some 78,000 vehicles daily moved along the Ruta 27 in 2019.

The concession contract allows the concessionaire to every 3 months, adjust up or down, the rate base on the dollar exchange rate.

The dollar exchange set by the Central Bank this Tuesday morning, September 29, is ¢606.10 for US$1 dollar.
