Toll exemption with aid to Ukraine did not bring a financial slump, while March brought the highest monthly toll collection in history

Prague, 13 April 2022 – In March carriers drove the toll road charges to the total amount of 1.353 billion crowns. As a result year-on-year tolls increased by 5.35%. The number of toll transactions increased by 0.9% year-on-year to 98 million in March.

As of March, in connection with aid to Ukraine, vehicles weighing over 3.5 tons transporting humanitarian aid for Ukraine have been exempt from toll payment. “By the end of March, we received 491 requests for toll exemption for humanitarian transport, which currently involves a total of 694 vehicles,” said Petr Chvátal, CzechToll’s Chief Operating Officer.

For carriers transporting humanitarian aid, all you have to do is fill in the online form at www.mytocz.eu. If an OBU has already been issued for a vehicle, it must contact the call centre before the journey +420 243 243 and put the unit into transport mode.

March is traditionally one of the months with the highest toll collection. Last year, it was surpassed only by November with a toll collection of 1.31 billion crowns. In the long run, over one half of the toll collection is going to be paid by foreign carriers.

At the end of March 667 thousand vehicles weighing over 3.5 tonnes were registered in the electronic toll system. Of these, almost 166,000 vehicles had domestic license plate numbers; the remaining vehicles had foreign ones. The number of on-board units issued to carriers reached 544 thousand.
