    FINALLY! I remember seeing mention of the change of law a while back (couldn't find the thread to update it though), but they've been customarily slow to actually make it happen, but today for the first time I got charged half price on the cuota section of 200 between Manzanillo and Tecoman. It looks like they finally made the change. I can't say if it's in effect nationally yet, but as of today it is here in this corner of Mexico. Wooooo! :clap

    There's one around Maz that's always been 1/2, but I don't remember which one right now.
    Hopefully, this goes national.

    The feedback I'm getting from riders around Guadalajara is that is nation wide. Lets hope.

    I rode from Guad to Manzanillo two weeks ago and paid full price at all 4 toll booths, including the one that only charged me half today, so if it's in effect there, it was a recent change.

    I rode down on Nov 13th and paid full tolls in Nogales, Magdalena and Hermosillo and rode back on the 16th and paid half the tolls, so just maybe its actually true!!:clap

    Thank you all for the positive posts. My wife and I will be riding south out of Tucson in mid December. The idea of half price tolls will save us a bundle!!

    It's about time. They should follow Colombia's lead and make it free for motos to use the cuotas.

    ¡Motos a la derecha! :clap

    Believe me , I tried to informe them :deal
    The first two times they told that they have not been informed about any price reduction and in the following 2 toll booth they told me that the new price will start January 1 , 2013

    Then on the Arco Norte to Puebla , I paid only half price .

    You're right about that, but I had to be somewhere at a certain time.
    It was my second time on the cuota in 4 month and 10 000+ KM in Mexico...

    Whenever I bend the old and true "never ride at night" rule, I like to use the cuotas, early early AM or later evening.
    And also when I need to meet up with Guaterider somewhere and I have woken up late.,:deal
    But then I usually end up being early, anyways.
    It's Mexico, things like that happen.

    Libres are fun, but they get old when you live here and have to use them every day.
