Prague, 14 March 2022 – The number of passages of vehicles weighing more than 3.5 tons on toll roads increased in February as well. The toll system recorded almost 84 million toll transactions, i.e. 4 percent more than in February 2021. Carriers paid tolls in the total amount of 1.18 billion Czech crowns for driving on toll roads (year-on-year increase of 8.6 percent).
Given the current situation in Ukraine, vehicles over 3.5 tonnes can benefit from toll exemption starting from 4 March 2022 for the duration of the emergency, provided that the journey is for humanitarian purposes in relation to Ukraine and the carrier duly reports it. Before driving on toll roads, the carrier must fill in the table available on the website www.mytocz.eu and then send it to the designated e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org . A confirmation e-mail informs them of the successful submission of the application.
A detailed procedure for the drivers of humanitarian trips can be found on the website: https://mytocz.eu/cs/Hum_UA.
The increase in toll collection is due not only to a slight increase in traffic intensity but also to the expansion of the toll road network as of 1 February 2022. In February, tolls were newly charged on sections of the D6, D7, D11, D35 and D55 motorways, which were commissioned in 2021.
At the end of February 658 thousand vehicles weighing over 3.5 tonnes were registered in the electronic toll system. Of these, over 165 thousand vehicles had domestic license plate numbers, the remaining 493 thousand vehicles were registered abroad. The number of on-board units issued to carriers reached 539 thousand.
