For car/vans/SUVs, the price for one way journey will cost commuters 155 while a return trip will cost 235, a notification issued by NHAI said as reported by Times of India.

For light commercial vehicles (LCVs), Large Goods Vehicle (LGVs) or mini busses, the price for one way journey will cost 235 while return will cost 375.

For Trucks or busses, the toll prices will be 525 for one way trip while 790 for return.

As per the report, a monthly pass for non-commercial vehicle plying within a 20-kilometer radius of the toll plaza will be available from NHAI for 330. 

Moreover, from mid-July, 2-wheelers, three-wheelers or any agricultural vehicles will be banned from entering the Bengaluru Mysuru expressway, NHAI officials told The New Indian Express. 

Some media reports also stated that since the inauguration of the expressway, over 90 deaths have been reported.

On 12 March, PM Modi inaugurated and dedicated the Bengaluru-Mysuru Expressway to the nation. The 118-km expressway is built at the cost of 8,408 crore. The expressway reduced the time between Bengaluru and Mysore from 3.5 hours to around 1.5 hours.

Earlier, NHAI had increased the toll charges on the Bengaluru-Mysuru Expressway by 22 percent. The increase in toll charges came into effect from June 1 and was applicable for cars, buses and trucks. Prior to that, it had tried to raise the toll prices on April 1 as well but had to take back the new charges after an uproar from the commuters.
