VIDEO: Greece launches revolutionary pay-per-mile-only tolling system


Greece is the first country in the EU to operate an electronic toll system in which drivers are only charged for kilometers driven on the motorway.

“Kilometer-based toll billing is the future,” says Michael Weber, strategic sales manager of solution providers Kapsch TrafficCom. “The European Union sees traditional section payment as an unfair phase-out model and is pushing to charge only for actual kilometers driven. This method will be mandatory for new toll routes and a recommended feature for existing toll routes.”
