Motos pay half price on cuotas!!

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!

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.

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.

Hay que informarles que autos con dos ruedas pagan la mitad.

Believe me , I tried to informe them
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 .
